All-time Record: Leeds v QPR 23W 16D 19L

Reverse Fixture: 8 December 2018: Leeds 2-1 QPR


Marcelo Bielsa is already sounding like he considers everything from now until the end of the season to be vitally important games, and while it’s not quite at “must-win” level of performances from here on out, at the very least Leeds should be getting results in all of their matches, especially from teams below them in the table.

Bielsa is typically extremely humble, and takes great lengths to compliment the other team, and it might not be just him being polite. As someone who is obsessive over every detail, he knows that the other team, no matter the record, has the capability to beat Leeds on any given day if everything goes against Leeds and for the opponents.

Of course, since he prepares so much, the players are usually extremely prepared as well, and hopefully that means that Leeds will be able to a win in London and get back into the promotion places.

The team is unchanged, but then again, we’re all used to that by now, aren’t we? Unless there is an injury, Bielsa usually seems to take the “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it” philosophy towards starting XIs, so after winning against Bolton Wanderers on the weekend, we were almost certainly going to see the same starting XI.

The only question will be if Izzy Brown finally finds his way into a match, and with Barry Douglas and Gaetano Berardi fit enough for the bench, if one of them makes their way into the match. It seems like a lot has been made of the insane amount of injuries at the club, but as long as players keep coming back and the replacements keep doing their part, it’ll all work out in the end.
