'Never question them' - Tony Dorigo predicts Leeds clash v Crystal Palace

Tony Dorigo has backed Leeds United to beat Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

The Whites go to the game at Selhurst Park on the back of their crushing defeat against Leicester and will be looking for a reaction.

The LUTV pundit believes that Marcelo Bielsa always gets his side “roaring” after a defeat, and expects the same against Palace.

Dorigo admitted that you can never question the attitude and desire of the Leeds squad, something

“I’m feeling good,” he told LUTV.

“We always get a reaction, don’t we? As soon as the boys, unfortunately, have a difficult game. You never question them, never question their attitude and their desire and application.

“I think they’ll come roaring back. I’m looking at this Palace side – decent, but I think we can beat them.”

Dorigo is spot on, Leeds always bounce back.

On the two other occasions that the Whites have lost in the Premier League season, they have won their next games against Fulham and Aston Villa.

These games against the so-called mid-table teams are vital for Leeds this season, and three points over them will propel them towards the top half of the table.

Crystal Palace have the exact same record this season but are over-reliant on Wilfried Zaha if the Whites can stop him, they have a great chance at Selhurst Park.

Three points could send Leeds as high as fourth, turning a good start this season into a great one – bring it on.
