Leeds United have faced absurd criticism in recent weeks due to their performance in the Premier League and that defeat at Crawley.

Sky Sports shared a post asking whether or not the wheels had come off at Elland Road after their 1-0 loss against Brighton.

The Whites’ last win came against West Brom at the end of December, with no positive results since the turn of the year.

Perspective is a funny thing though and looking at the wider picture, Leeds are doing great in their first season back in the Premier League.

Marcelo Bielsa admitted that he is worried about his side recently, but he certainly has reasons to be delighted with what they are producing.

Leeds have earned six points in their last five Premier League games.

Compare that to the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea, and the Whites are actually above both of those sides in the form table.

Frank Lampard has only accumulated four points, with Jurgen Klopp even worst – the Champions have only picked up three after their defeat against Burnley last night.

This is a Chelsea side who have players such as Kai Havertz on their bench, the German international costing more than our average side this season entirely.

Looking at the even wider picture, then we discuss the likes of Sheffield United and Wolves.

Despite both being the standout teams in the Premier League last season, Leeds have come back after 16 years away and currently sit above both of them.

We all set the goal of survival this season, that way we can reinforce the squad over the summer and push towards the top half of the table.

The media can’t help themselves with Leeds though.

After one win, they’re the best team in the league, but after one defeat, they are the worst and need to change – perspective is needed here, and quick.
