Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa claimed that the club should remain focussed in the Championship after returning to the top of the table by beating West Brom. Leeds were able to get a comprehensive 4-0 success over West Brom to overtake Sheffield United and Norwich City. Even though the latter has the choice of getting back the top spot with a win from their game in hand, there is no denying the added pressure on the Canaries. Bielsa has seen his Leeds team come up with some inconsistent performances of late. The lack of consistency is usually not a major problem in the Championship when teams tend to drop points at various points in the campaign.
Tottenham Hotspur legend Ledley King believes Leeds United are strong favourites to return to the Premier League, should they maintain their form through the festive period. The west Yorkshire outfit have transformed themselves into frontrunners for promotion under Marcelo Bielsa and they were temporarily at the top of the standings over the weekend before Norwich City leapfrogged them to the summit.
