Sky Sports pundit Lewis Jones has predicted that the Leeds United v Brighton game on Saturday could “explode into a typically mad Leeds encounter”.
He thinks that Brighton won’t be able to resist getting dragged into a “gung-ho” game where an early goal could “send the game into chaos mode”.
His big prediction is for lots of shots – from both sides – but he thinks the game will end in a 2-2 draw.
“This game has all the ingredients to explode into a typically mad Leeds encounter,” Jones wrote in his regular Sky Sports column.
“Games involving Leeds have produced the most shots combined of any club in the Premier League.
“No matter who you are, it is likely you are going to get dragged into a gung-ho encounter full of incident and chances. And Brighton won’t be able to resist.
“An early goal could send this game into chaos mode.”
Unleash the chaos!
Well, this doesn’t sound like much fun!
Joking aside, we watched the Arsenal v Crystal Palace game on Thursday night and we can’t believe the dour football Mikel Arteta has got his side playing.
It’s almost the opposite of Bielsa ball. Where the Arsenal players seem happiest going sideways and backwards, Leeds are always looking to get the ball and players forward.
We really need Brighton to come out and attack us on Saturday and that’s what Jones thinks will happen.
If it does, we think Leeds will have far too much for a Brighton side who are struggling for points and for goals.
Leeds will want to prove a point after the Crawley mishap and Raphinha and Bamford are the players who can do it.
