Yes, who does not love a blood and guts Yorkshire rivalry? shock today is the first high-flying Yorkshire battle in 19 years (the last was in 2001 Yorkshire derby between Leeds and Bradford, in case you were wondering …). But it’s not as if these two teams not very well known – the white rose couple on the same managers (more on them later) in the championship two years ago.
Leaves have been the sharper of the two winning four of their last five games. But it is fair to say Leeds comes to the match as favorites. Marcelo Bielsa’s team have won one and lost so far this season – both by the same score 4-3 and not disappoint those who, like me, who were excited about returning to the Premier League. On the other hand Sheffield United is without a point and a goal because, they’ll be trying to switch to the least one of these sorry statistics today. Not only that, but they are on a losing streak five consecutive league – their worst streak since 2013 – and are in need of some kind of change, if only to change the mood and the moment at Bramall Lane.
