'Very, very careful' - Tony Dorigo fires Leeds warning ahead of Leicester clash
Tony Dorigo has delivered a warning to Leeds United ahead of their Premier League clash with Leicester City on Monday.
The former Whites defender admitted he was worried about the threat that the Foxes potentially carry on the counter-attack at Elland Road.
Leeds have enjoyed a mixed-run from their home games so far, winning, drawing and losing one from their three.
Dorigo pointed out the likes of Jamie Vardy and Youri Tielemans as players to watch in West Yorkshire ahead of the game.
“If there’s a team that set up to worry me, it’s Leicester,” he told LUTV.
“The way that they play and on the counter, the ability they’ve got with the likes of Tielemans, Barnes, they brought in Castagne and obviously Vardy.
“It’s a team that’s made for counter-attacks, so we have to be very, very careful. However, we can make chances again, that’s what we will do – we’ll ask plenty of questions about their defence.”
Dorigo certainly has a point.
Looking at Leicester’s away form this season, they have already picked up wins against both Arsenal and Manchester City.
They were dominated on the ball in both of those games, but expertly caught those two out on the break and caused havoc with Vardy.
Leeds will be looking to avoid a similar fate to the one they suffered in the 1-0 defeat against Wolves. In that game, the Whites kept 67.8% possession and had six more shots on goal, but still lost [WhoScored].
Marcelo Bielsa has already claimed he won’t have a secret plan to keep Vardy quiet, and we have learnt not to argue with El Loco over his tactics – fingers crossed.
