Leeds’ Samuel Saiz could learn something from Blackburn counterpart

Leeds United playmaker Samuel Saiz is a mainstay in Marcelo Bielsa’s side and regarded as one of the most talented individuals at Elland Road.

But the one grey cloud hanging over the 27-year-old is the lack of goals in his game and there is certainly scope for improvement in that area.

The attacking midfielder is a vital component for the Whites given his influence in the final third with quick thinking and mazy dribbles, but he could take his game to the next level if he scores more often.

The Spaniard has just one goal in 14 games across all competition this campaign, which is remarkably low for someone of his ability.

Both are similar players given they play in the advanced number 10 role behind the striker and are a vital cogs for their teams.

There isn’t much to split them when it comes down to technical ability and in fact that Leeds magician may have the edge, but the Blackburn ace is returning a much better output in front of goal.

Dack has made 10 appearances across all competitions this campaign for Blackburn, scoring eight goals and supplying five assists in return.

Saiz has to be aiming to become a regular goalscorer for Leeds and could pick up a few tips from the way Dack goes about his business.
