Hammered 7-0 by Manchester City, they were dismantled in the first half by Arsenal in front of a quiet Elland Road when they suffered another defeat, leaving them five points from safety but 3 games more than 18. , and two more than Watford in 17th place.
The biggest caveat with all of this, of course, is that Leeds currently has one of the, if not the longest injury lists in the Premier League, with 15-year-old Archie Gray called up for the Yorkshire side against Arsenal on the bench.
Players like Patrick Bamford, Kalvin Phillips, Rodrigo, Dan James, Jamie Shackleton and Pascal Struijk are absent for one reason or another, which throws Marcelo Bielsa’s tactical plans into a throat.
Will Bielsa leave?
Well, according to Football Insider, possibly.
In a report released Tuesday morning, they claim that:
A United source told Football Insider that Bielsa ‘won’t be in Leeds next season’ as the club’s leaders increasingly accept that his fourth season will be his last.
He could even leave in January if the results don’t improve:
“The source added that Leeds will try to bring in a new manager if their fear of being drawn into a relegation battle increases.”
It would be an unpopular decision as Bielsa’s name rings on Elland Road even at 4-1 deficit from Leeds fans, who acknowledge the massive contribution he has made to the club and have murals of the Argentine all over town .
Bielsa could go for her, however.
Would Leeds be better without the Argentine?
