Alan Brazil questions Leeds' depth in Premier League
Alan Brazil has been left questioning Leeds United and their depth in the Premier League this season.
Discussing where the Whites could finish, all on talkSPORT including Ray Parlour admitted that the top half would be good enough.
Brazil admitted his love for Marcelo Bielsa’s side but did insist that there were deep-lying concerns at the back of his mind.
Speaking on talkSPORT this morning, Brazil questioned whether the strength in depth available is good enough at Elland Road.
“You look at that table now, top half would be good,” he said.
“I just wonder, have they got the quality in the squad if they go one down to fight back and win a game 2-1 or 3-2, I’m not so sure.

“I love the way they pass the ball, they’re slick, the work rate they have, you’ve got to do that anyway. The work rate and the way they fight for each other is brilliant.
“When they go behind now, I just think, can they overcome this? Can they go on and win it, I’m not so sure.”
If this was offered to us right now, there wouldn’t be one Leeds fan who would turn that down given our start.
We have had some tough fixtures including Liverpool, Manchester United and Everton, and now it is time to pick up some points.
Brazil is right to point out the squad depth, just look at our defence as things stand with the crisis on our hands.
Diego Llorente, Pascal Struijk and Robin Koch are all out injured or suspended and leaving us with few options.
Should that happen in the final third, there could be a major issue at Elland Road, and it would affect our performance.
Time will tell, but the top half sounds good to us right now.
