Coach Bielsa’s teachers and teachers buried West Brom in the match of round 16 of the Premier League on December 30.
West Brom held the defending champions Liverpool in the previous round, but could not maintain an impressive performance when hosting Leeds. Coach Sam Allardyce’s teachers and students were conceded 5 times by the opponent, thereby continuing to remain in the penultimate position on the rankings.
The poor performance of “The Baggies” helped Leeds create an impressive series of statistics. For the first time in 19 years, the football team from Yorkshire scored 4 or more goals against the opponent’s net in just the first half. In May 2001, “The Whites” led Bradford 5-1 after 45 minutes and ended the game with a score of 6-1.
Leeds conquered the audience of the Premier League with a devoted play
After 16 rounds, Leeds is the most devoted team in the Premier League with 60 goals leading to goals (scoring 30 goals, conceding 30 goals). With the same number of matches, only Southampton in the 1986/87 season played more devotedly (scoring 30 goals, conceding 35 times).
The fans could not recognize the defenders only let Liverpool hit 2 shots on target during the 90 minutes in round 15. The West Brom defenders were not focused and had to receive 4 goals in the first half. After an own goal from midfielder Sawyers, Alioski, Harrison, and Rodrigo respectively scored. Raphinha scored the biggest winner from the start of the season for Leeds in the 72nd minute.
3 points ahead of West Brom helped Leeds rise to 11th place with 23 points. The home team of Elland Road is 3 points behind the European Cup team.
Man United vs. Leeds United
The match of the 14th round of the Premier League between Man United and Leeds United took place with an unexpected scenario when the home team easily won 6-2.
Even with a very good head-to-head record, with a series of 15 consecutive unbeaten matches when receiving Leeds (winning 9 draws 6), MU fans can hardly imagine their team having an easy game.
However, the score 6-2 in favor of the Red Devils is still enough to make their fans happy, especially when it helps the Old Trafford team to rise to the top 3 on the Premier League standings 2020/21, with 26 points after 14 rounds, 5 points behind top team Liverpool and less than a match.
