Leeds United – 19th

Season Review

Leeds couldn’t repeat last season’s final day heroics when they retained their Premier League status. Their three-year stint back in the top-flight came to an end with a 4-1 drubbing from Spurs, and they finished a disappointing five points away from safety.

The Good

With the devastating result of relegation it is difficult to find positives for Leeds’ fans. Their best period of form came at the very start of the season, going unbeaten in the first three, winning two. It was hard to believe back then that season would end how it did.

The Bad

Leeds’ leaky defence was key to their poor results. They conceded 23 goals in April which is a new Premier League record, it included thrashings by Bournemouth and Crystal Palace, and led to the dismissal of Javi Gracia.

Star Player: Jack Harrison

Harrison never gave up the fight, his goal gave Leeds a glimmer of hope in the final day defeat. He ended with figures of six goals and 10 assists.

Best Result: Liverpool 1-2 Leeds

An inspired performance from goalkeeper Illan Meslier was the foundation for an unforgettable night under the lights at Anfield. Crycensio Summerville scored the winner in the 89th minute to take all three points and send the travelling Leeds fans wild.

Worst Result: Bournemouth 4-1 Leeds

There are a few contenders as there were numerous bad results but this relegation six-pointer was a chance for the winner to take a step out of the dogfight. Bournemouth took that chance and Leeds crumbled.

Next Season

Leeds’ fans will hope it won’t be another 16 years for them to regain their place in the Premier League, but bouncing straight back will be a huge challenge with the amount of big clubs in the Championship all with the same goal. But if there isn’t a huge player exodus, and with their passionate fanbase behind them, they will still be one of the favourites to gain promotion next season.

Attention now turns to next season in the Premier League kicking off on August 12, and you can already find plenty of Outright markets at PokerStars Sports.
