Paul Merson told Sky Sports News (22:43, November 28, 2020) that he did not think Leeds United would withdraw from the Premier League.
The former Arsenal and Aston Villa star, who now works as a pundit of Sky Sports, was impressed by Leeds in a goalless draw with Arsenal on Premier League’s Eland Road last weekend.
Merson believes that as the season progresses, Marcelo Bilesar’s team will put other teams in trouble in the Premier League.
English added that he had changed his position towards Leeds, forgetting what he had written before.
Speaking about Leeds at Sky Sports News (22:43, November 28, 2020), Mirson said: “I think they are dangerous. I think they will cause problems as the season goes on. As the season progresses my idea is that the teams will get more tired. I think they’re as fit as they are now, I think they steamrolle the teams.
“I do not see them fighting in any way, not at all. In my opinion, they are definitely a better team in the top half of the table. I changed my tune on them.
“Initially, I thought, ‘What’s the hype? They’re losing football matches, it’s not good.’ But when I look at them now, they all know what they’re doing.
Premier League promotion
Leeds have had some disappointing results this season, such as their heavy defeats to Crystal Palace and Leicester City.
The West Yorkshire club, however, continued the campaign to draw Manchester City and Arsenal into the Premier League, and the team was great.
Then on Saturday evening at Leeds Goodison Park Carlo Anslotti won against Everton and created a performance that would probably impress Merson.
The Whites are playing in the Premier League for the first time since 2004, and the main goal is to avoid a terrible drop to the championship at the end of the season.
