Tonight sees Leeds United welcome Birmingham City to Elland Road in the Sky Bet Championship, with Thomas Christiansen’s side looking to stretch their unbeaten start to the season.
Whilst Leeds are flying high in the Championship in second, Harry Redknapp’s Birmingham have struggled, with Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Norwich City leaving the Blues with just four points from their opening six fixtures.
Redknapp’s side are outside the relegation zone on just goal difference, and face a mammoth task against Leeds at Elland Road, with the Whites entering the contest on the back of a 5-0 victory over Burton Albion.
Despite Leeds’ excellent start to the season, Redknapp has insisted that he is confident Birmingham can turn their campaign around tonight at Elland Road and begin their climb up the table.
The 70-year-old’s comments certainly seem to have amused Leeds’ supporters, who are entering the contest full of confidence…
Yeah, after watching Leeds vs Burton he must be super confident.
