Leeds United have been found out by Premier League - Sky Sports pundit

Ahead of their trip to Liverpool, Leeds United sit in the bottom three of the Premier League and David Prutton thinks they’ve been found out.

The Sky Sports pundit is a former Whites player and has been far from impressed by Jesse Marsch’s side so far this season.

He revealed to the Yorkshire Evening Post that he has not heard Elland Road as loud in discontent as he did after the 3-2 defeat against Fulham.

“That has now been well and truly found out I think with this Leeds side and Jesse was brought in to evolve it slightly,” he said. “They have been in games but I don’t think they have necessarily dominated games.

“From a personnel point of view, when you are underperforming as a team, the buck stops with the manager so I can understand the frustration.

“That was the loudest that we have heard displeasure after a game with them being resolutely booed off after the Fulham defeat but they weren’t very good at Leicester either.

“Things aren’t looking too bright at the moment and it now depends on how the next couple of games go.”

How long?

Andrea Radrizzani and Victor Orta will be asking themselves that very question over and over again as Marsch continues to struggle to get results out of this squad.

The quality should be there to beat the likes of Fulham and others no matter how well they are doing early on this season so something must be wrong for them not to.

Marsch is trying his best to get this system and ideology to work as it did for Marcelo Bielsa before him but maybe teams have found out how to play against it and now it isn’t as effective as it once was.

If that is the case, then the American has to be brave enough to admit that he got things wrong in this system and try something new and Liverpool away might be the perfect chance to do that.

Leeds aren’t expected to beat the Reds or Manchester City who are still to come prior to the international break so why not give it a go as it might just save his job.

In other Leeds United news, there is one tactical tweak that Marsch simply must make to exploit one of the weakest areas of Liverpool’s team.
