Can Leeds United keep up?. It is just 4 matches into the new Premier League season, but there have been a plethora of talking points including Everton’s four wins in all of their opening games and Leicester’s impressive thrashing of Manchester City last weekend.
But one Premier League club who has taken the Premier League by surprise is Leeds United. The team which was absent from Premier League action for 16 years won qualification last season as they ended up first and Champions in the English Championship last season.
And after 16 years, it feels that Leeds United was never absent. Their impressive display in their 4-3 defeat to defending Champions Liverpool showed how good of a side they are, as they forced Liverpool into so many errors and pegged them on three different occasions.
The next two matches saw them pick 6 out of the available six points including a win over fellow new boys Fulham. Marcelo Bielsa’s side followed those wins up with another impressive performance as they held Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side to a 1-1 draw.
But the question remains: can Leeds United keep up those good performances?
There is no doubt that Leeds United will continue to torment several clubs in the Premier League and could eventually become the dark horse this season but there is a concern of squad depth and players wearing out in the second of the season.
In relation to the first challenge, Leeds could suffer when the fixtures get congested as the same players would have to play several matches with little rest or time for recovery.
This could lead to the players wearing out and failing to deliver their best performances in the second part of the season just as it had happened two seasons ago as they failed to secure an automatic place in the Premier League.
