‘They’re not a bigger test’ – Leeds United’s trip to Swansea City tonight: The verdict

Published

on

Both Swansea City and Leeds United have enjoyed impressive starts to the season in the Championship.

With new managers at the helm of both sides, this early season encounter could indicate who will be vying for promotion to the Premier League come the end of the season.

So are Graham Potter’s side the toughest opposition Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds have faced so far?

We discuss…..

Jay Taylor

For sure.

Swansea will be the first team to face Leeds who will look to get the ball down and pass it between the lines.

The way Marcelo Bielsa’s men like to play it could leave the space to allow the Swans more time on the ball.

Graham Potter’s men have started well, and remain unbeaten like Leeds are, too.

It will be the acid test for Bielsa’s men who will look to continue their fine form.

Gary Hutchinson

Bigger than Stoke City, pre-season favourites? No.

Swansea might be on a par with Stoke, but they’re not a bigger test.

They’ll play some football and that will suit Leeds perfectly. Rotherham was a bigger test because it was something new, a team dogged and looking for a draw.

This is one for the neutral, that is for sure. It isn’t their biggest test though.

Jay Williams

Looking ahead to their opening four games, you would have said that Stoke City and Derby County would have been bigger tests on paper.

But Swansea look organised and tough to break down under Graham Potter.

After brushing aside their first three opponents, Leeds might have to be a bit more patient at The Liberty Stadium.

The longer the game goes on, the more you fancy Swansea to sneak a 1-0 win but an early goal for the Whites and they could enjoy another top day on the road.

George Dagless

It could well be.

Swansea have looked good a lot this season and though last Friday they were poor they still got a result.

They play good passing football and if they can get around Leeds’ press it’ll be interesting to see how the Whites react.
