After Leicester Draw, Projecting the Remaining Fixtures and Point Outcome for Leeds United

Leeds United are facing a nail-biting end to the season as they fight to retain their Premier League status for a fourth successive year. With just five games remaining, the Whites have a tough run-in, but there is still hope for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

After suffering heavy defeats to Crystal Palace and Liverpool, Leeds have managed to pick up a point against Leicester, which has kept them clear of the relegation zone as they head into their next game against Bournemouth.

In what many are calling a must-win game for Leeds, the Whites will face a tough challenge as they take on a Bournemouth side that has picked up important wins over Fulham, Leicester and Tottenham in recent weeks. However, with both sides struggling defensively this season, Leeds may be able to score the goals they need to secure a crucial victory.

Leeds’ trip to the Etihad to face Manchester City is likely to be a much tougher encounter. The fixture has been moved to a 3pm kick-off on Saturday 6th May, and while Pep Guardiola may decide to rest some players with one eye on the Champions League semi-finals, Leeds shipped seven goals in their last game at City. It’s a daunting prospect, and a resounding win for the hosts could be on the cards.

The penultimate home game of the season for Leeds will see them take on high-flying Newcastle United, who are pushing for Champions League qualification under Eddie Howe. It’s a nervy occasion for both sides as they both have so much to play for, but it may be a bridge too far for Leeds, who may struggle to keep a clean sheet against a team in such good form.

West Ham is the next stop for Leeds, and David Moyes’ side is in good form, having picked up a series of wins and draws in recent weeks. However, their Premier League status is likely to be secured by the time they face Leeds, and with a potentially tiring side to face, there is hope for Leeds to grind out another point in their battle to avoid the drop.

The final game of the season sees Leeds take on Tottenham, and there could be a lot at stake for both sides. European qualification may be on the line for Spurs, and Leeds will know that a win could secure their safety. It could be a nervy affair, but with their eyes on other scores, Leeds may be able to secure a point to finish on a predicted 35 points.

It’s sure to be a rollercoaster end to the season for Leeds United, and with tough games ahead, they will need to pull out all the stops to stay in the Premier League for another year.
