'In trouble': £20m Newcastle player claims Leeds are going to be relegated this season
Callum Wilson says Leeds are going to be relegated at the end of the current Premier League season looking at the fixtures.
Recent wins for Burnley and Everton have piled the pressure on Jesse Marsch’s men and they face a tricky trip to Arsenal next up.
It looks like a battle between those three clubs to avoid that final relegation slot, with Norwich’s relegation confirmed last weekend and Watford all but down.
And speaking on the BBC’s Footballer’s Football Podcast, Wilson says Leeds are going to be relegated because the other two sides have the momentum.
Wilson says Leeds are going to be relegated
“If I had to choose from the remaining fixtures, it looks like Leeds could be in trouble,” he said.
“We were in that position not long ago and managed to get ourselves out of there. I just feel with the remaining fixtures and with the momentum that Everton have now got with beating Chelsea, that could be what they need to get themselves out.
“Burnley have done tremendously to get themselves into that position where they are because they did look down and out, but I feel like they’re the ones in form.
“I think it’s Leeds that will be in trouble.”
Pundit Micah Richards has said earlier this week that he also fears that Leeds will be relegated in the final Premier League reckoning.
Leeds did have some momentum under Marsch and they are certainly defending more tightly than they were under Marcelo Bielsa.
But they do need to go again, because Burnley are flying and Everton’s home form looks like it could keep them in the top flight.
Leeds could make hay when Everton play away from home, because their record on the road is so poor and there are plenty of twists and turns ahead in the relegation battle.
