Andy Couzens expects twists and turns as Leeds United fight for survival

Andy Couzens says the results didn’t go in Leeds United’s favor this week as the relegation battle intensifies.

The Whites lost 4-0 to Manchester City, while Burnley and Everton won their respective games.

Burnley beat Watford 2-1 on Saturday, while Everton managed a 1-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday.

Couzens wrote about Twitter: “Not the results we wanted this weekend but there are still plenty of twists and turns to come in this battle for survival.”

Vital the next two games

The next two games are absolutely vital for Leeds and the results could shape their Premier League fate.

The Whites are actually on good form. Before the big loss to City, they managed three wins and two draws in their last five games.

In fact, they started very well against City, but defensive errors crept in and they lost their way as a result.

There’s no shame in losing against Pep Guardiola’s side but the Whites need to pull themselves together quickly and get positive results in their next two games.

With Everton picking up a win today, Los Blancos can hardly relax, given the Toffees have a game on the way.

Leeds’ next two games include a trip to the Emirates to face Arsenal, which has not been a happy hunting ground for the Toffees.

After that, they next face Chelsea at Elland Road. If Leeds fail to win at least one point from those two games, they will likely call on Burnley and Everton to overtake them.

Both teams would be incredibly tough, but Leeds need to stay focused. Two draws would be ideal, and a win in one of them would be massive.
