Relegation threatens Leeds United who should definitely be looking for some points here. Brighton & Hove Albion is no longer fighting for a cause; they can neither go up or down this season.

The hosts Leeds saw competitive action as recent as four days ago, playing in the Premier League. Thankfully the previous game, versus Chelsea, was also a home game here at Elland Road. The away team is better rested.

Leeds United form and stats

The home fans haven’t been spoiled with victories in the Premier League this season. Leeds United have only managed 4 wins, 5 draws and 9 losses from their games here at Elland Road. Leeds United has three losses from their three previous games and the tension is increasing in the dressing room for both the manager Marsch and the players.

The Leeds United supporters got no joy from their last match, also played here at Elland Road: A 0-3 defeat against Chelsea (placed 3rd). Cooper, defender, was given a rating of 6.84/10 in that game, top of the team. Cooper won 4 of 6 duels.

A defeat was the result before that one, 1-2 away at Arsenal.

This is expected to be a close game, with Leeds United perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Leeds United as a small favourite), we find seven games. Leeds United has won one of these, drawn two and lost four.
