Bielsa says Leeds need to win all five of their remaining games. Says they can't afford to drop any points now. Team will be unchanged on Saturday. #lufc— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) April 11, 2019
Leeds United face Sheffield Wednesday with an eye on the results from earlier in the day, as Sheffield United can leapfrog over Leeds and reclaim second place before a ball is even kicked at Elland Road. Sheffield United host Millwall at Bramall Lane, and unless the relegation threatened visitors from South London are able to pick up a victory on the road for the first time in about a month, Sheffield United are likely to be ahead on at least goal difference going into the match.
Leeds will field an unchanged side, as Marcelo Bielsa rarely rotates or changes his team unless he is forced to by injury. He’ll occasionally drop some one for a loss of form, but he’s usually one to let players try to play their way through slumps. However if Leeds are down early in the second half, don’t be surprised to see Kemar Roofe, Leeds United’s leading scorer, get subbed in.
The promotion race is now down to five games, and Bielsa has set the expectation that the team should be able to win all five of them if they wish to be promoted. Here we go.
