Forshaw picks out 'unbelievable' positive from Leeds loss to Liverpool
Adam Forshaw has suggested that the Leeds United fans were the one positive from their defeat to Liverpool on Wednesday, labelling their contribution unbelievable.
Leeds supporters will be finding it hard to find a reason why they will not be relegated from the Premier League this season. They are slowly sliding closer towards the bottom three.
Obviously, they would have had little expectation heading into their clash with the Reds. However, there is a way of losing games. And Leeds made a raft of defensive mistakes once again as Liverpool put six past Illan Meslier.
Forshaw was on press duties after the game. And in truth, his demeanour evoked memories of that interview Luke Ayling gave after Leeds were beaten at Nottingham Forest in the Championship.
The midfielder – who was arguably Leeds’ best player on the night, once again – was still able to pick out one upside from another devastating evening.
“The positive is the fans were unbelievable again,” Forshaw said. “They never stop and they make us proud. And I think that’s probably one thing that we can take from it that they’re always there for us.
“The fans are unbelievable, and they’ll be there again on Saturday pushing us on.”

That defeat at the City Ground ultimately became a turning point in Leeds’ season as they pushed for promotion. They went on to only lose one game in the final 15 fixtures of the campaign.
That secured Leeds the title at something of a canter.
Obviously, Leeds are not going to produce a run of one defeat in their final 13 games. But around 12 points should be enough to get them across the line and keep them up.
Right now, it is hard to see the Whites getting those points. They look to have absolutely no confidence. And an early goal against them will see heads drop once again this weekend.
There is still time for Leeds to turn their fortunes around. But it now looks to be absolutely imperative that the turning point comes in the very near future.
