Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich has claimed he wants his side to “destroy” Sheffield United at the weekend just like they did earlier in the month against West Brom.
Marcelo Bielsa’s team have won their last three consecutive league fixtures, which started with the 4-0 home demolition of West Brom.
The Whites are currently second in the Championship table and have a huge game at Elland Road against third-placed Sheffield United on Saturday.
Leeds will go five points clear of them with a win and open up a decent gap in the race for automatic promotion to the Premier League.
Klich has been speaking ahead of the weekend’s fixture and recalled the attitude the team had when they performed brilliantly against West Brom.
“Personally I really enjoy it. In football you need pressure. It keeps you going. Losing the QPR game motivated us to destroy West Brom at home. I really hope we’re going to play the same game [against Sheffield United],” Klich said, as quoted by Yorkshire Evening Post chief writer Phil Hay on Twitter.
Leeds may even be too much for Sheffield United to handle if they perform anywhere near the levels they did in the first-half against West Brom.
There is a great spirit in the ranks right now, but their opponents can’t be underestimated and a win for them will see them overtake them in the league table.
Klich’s “destroy” comment is spot on when it comes to their ruthless attacking at times and they can be too hot for Championship defences to handle when on form.
Here are some of the Leeds fans delighted with the midfielder’s comments:
