Mark Lawrenson predicts result of Leeds United v Leicester City
Mark Lawrenson expects Leeds United to finally pick up their first win in two months when they take on Leicester City on Thursday night.
The Foxes sit in the relegation zone and manager Brenden Rodgers is under tremendous pressure over the safety of his job.
Lawrenson expects Leeds to add to Rodgers’ misery with a win away at the King Power Stadium.
Predicting a 2-1 away win, he told Paddy Power, “Leeds will be kicking themselves for not taking any points off Arsenal. They’re lacking just a bit of quality in the final third. Leicester got a point against Palace but there’s lots of discontent there. They need to be careful, they’re not too good to go down.”
Get the win
Leeds have no excuses to not pick up three points against this struggling Leicester side who looking hapless in most games.
Apart from keeping possession, they do not really have any fixed way of attacking and many of their players seem to be all over the place.
In defence, there is no real cohesion and the buck eventually will stop at the manager who surprisingly still isn’t out of the job.
Under a new manager, players may turn up inspired so it’s the perfect time for Leeds to play them and get the three points.
Their last win was in August against Chelsea and are finding themselves slipping on the table with each passing game.
Hopefully, their fortunes can change and they register a few wins before the league takes a break for the World Cup.
