Leeds are winless in six Premier League games, having failed to win since the opening month of the season against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Chelsea, but face a vulnerable and exhausted Leicester side tonight.
The King Power Stadium will play the elite basement club as they entertain Jesse Marsch’s Whites for the second time in 2022.
Marsch began his journey as United head coach with a defeat in the Midlands, and some 20 games later returns to Leicestershire with the aim of bringing the three points back to Elland Road, easing the pressure on him -even and improving Leeds’ position in the table.
Tuesday and Wednesday night’s results mean United slipped to 16th in the table ahead of kick-off at the King Power Stadium, but a win tonight could take the team down to 12th with a game less on the table. majority of the teams around them.
Tonight’s match is being streamed live on Amazon Prime Sport in the UK as well as a variety of international broadcasters. Kick-off is at 8:15 p.m.

One of the things I saw before coming was how the board supported Marcelo until the end. I can only say that I felt that same support, from everyone. When a team is going through a bad period, the coach is the first to be questioned. We are together.
For me the performances are not terrible. We have limited them in many ways. We even push hard to 1-0. If it comes to 1-1 it could be very different, but we can’t convert. In the second half, I thought the guys pushed hard.
Everyone is pissed off, but we all feel like we’ve let ourselves down. We must stop the bleeding and find a way on Sunday
We are totally united. This is not a problem.
It’s too early, but when we look at the picture we slip up because we don’t get the results and it’s painful.
I want the group to remain strong and united and to be convinced of what we are doing. I think because they want to be so successful for themselves and for each other and for the fans, it creates a bit of tension that I always try to deal with.
At that time, I was disappointed. It’s nothing against the fans. I want to tell them sorry, it has nothing to do with anything other than my focus on Sunday
Co-op is so important that we don’t want to push it into three-game weeks.
