Trevor Sinclair believes Leeds United won't 'have enough' to avoid relegation
Trevor Sinclair believes Leeds United won’t have enough to avoid relegation with the former West Ham winger backing Burnley to survive.
Leeds go into the final day knowing that they have to better Burnley’s result to stand any chance of maintaining their Premier League status this season.
The Whites go into the match in poor form and Sinclair doesn’t believe Jesse Marsch’s side will have enough to survive.
talking on talkSPORT breakfast, Sinclair said: “I just don’t know whether Leeds have got enough with the injuries and suspensions their squad has had to endure over the last few games.
“Their lack of discipline and head loss has left them a little bit light and for the squad players to come in last game of the season against a buoyant Brentford side I think it’s going to be very difficult for Leeds to get anything out of the game.”
Sinclair added: “Possibly Burnley will be able to get a draw, Burnley have been in this position many times.”
It’s hard to disagree with Sinclair.
All signs point to Burnley managing to get something against Newcastle, regardless of the Magpies’ superb form under Eddie Howe.
Leeds have injuries, and suspensions and are heading to a bang in-form Brentford side.
It is looking like a small miracle may need to occur for Leeds to avoid dropping into the Championship.
Marsch will be hoping Eddie Howe’s side continue their great form and finish the season with a win at Burnley.
Burnley have been in this position before and have players that will stand up and fight till the last minute.
The Clarets showed their fighting spirit with a good performance against Aston Villa on Thursday [19 May].
Much like Brentford, Newcastle can secure a top ten finish with a win over the Clarets on Sunday [22 May].
Leeds will need the likes of Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips to stand up and deliver when the Whites really need it.
