Leeds’s performances are on an upward trajectory, as Jesse Marsch likes to remind everyone, but unfortunately they have not won in their past seven matches and have put the head coach under pressure. They dominated at Nottingham Forest but succumbed to Brennan Johnson’s first-half strike and an inspired Keylor Navas debut.
For all the positive words from the Leeds head coach in recent weeks, they lack the ruthlessness that is required in the Premier League and that explains why they are outside the relegation zone only on goal difference. Everton and Wolves have seen the positive impact of managerial change and Marsch will be left wondering how sustainable his position is, with chants for him to leave coming from the away end, a viewpoint Marsch “understands”.
