‘Feeling nervy’: Ian Wright makes worrying claim about Leeds

Ian Wright admits he’s worrying about several teams in the Premier League, one of which is Leeds United, being dragged into the relegation battle.

The Whites began the season brightly, their swashbuckling style of football winning many admirers and, initially, a decent amount of points.

However, Leeds’ form has taken a big downturn this month, with Spurs and Brighton both beating Marcelo Bielsa’s side in the league.

The Elland Road side also suffered a heavy defeat away to League Two Crawley in the FA Cup third round.

And with Fulham gaining momentum in the bottom three, Wright is starting to worry for Leeds, as well as Wolves and Newcastle.

“Leeds, Wolves and Newcastle – if I’m their fans at the moment I think I’m feeling nervy,” he said on Wrighty’s House podcast.


“Fulham for me will probably be feeling, with the way they are playing, they look like a problem and a danger. They will feel like they can get out of that.

“I worry for Wolves and Newcastle. And I think Leeds need to get back to the Leeds of the start of the season.”

TBR View:

Leeds aren’t in a precarious position at this moment in time, and obviously they’re more than capable of getting good results, as they did at the end of 2020.

That said, some alarm bells will no doubt have started ringing, particularly with the meek defeat to Brighton – a struggling side – at Elland Road, not to mention the morale-sapping hammering at Crawley.

Leeds are next up against Newcastle away and, although the Magpies are in terrible form at present, the pressure will be on the Whites, as they could be dragged into the mire should Steve Bruce’s side get a result.
