It’s the start of the American revolution at Leeds United on Saturday, as Jesse Marsch takes charge of his first game for Leeds United as they head to the King Power Stadium.
Marsch has a lot to change quickly for the Whites, with Leeds losing four games in a row and conceding 20 goals in their last five. This was a Premier League record for most goals conceded in a calendar month and forced their owner, Andrea Radrizzani, to call an end to Marcelo Bielsa’s magical three and a half years in charge at Elland Road.
With Patrick Bamford expected to be back in the squad, Leeds could be getting a huge boost in their fight for survival, being just two points above the relegation zone.
Brendan Rogers, like his counterparts this weekend, has had to deal with plenty of injuries as the Foxes have failed to replicate the form of the last two seasons which almost qualified Leicester for the Champions League.
Jamie Vardy’s return in midweek was massive as he got on the scoresheet to secure Leicester a 2-0 victory away to Burnley, most likely quashing any fears of being dragged into an unexpected relegation battle.
The game earlier on in the season finished 1-1, thanks to a brilliant freekick by Raphina followed by an instantaneous reply by Harvey Barnes. Chances will be created here, so Raphina and Jamie Vardy to have a shot on target is very likely.
