Leeds United star man tipped to join Man Utd this summer

Leeds United will be looking to take another step towards Premier League survival on Monday when they take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

As things stand, the Whites are eight points clear of the relegation zone with five games to go and will be looking to secure their survival long before their final game of the season against Brentford.

Last time out Leeds picked up a 3-0 win at Watford, with Raphinha, Rodrigo and Jack Harrison on the scoresheet at Carrow Road.

When Los Blancos last played the Eagles in November, Raphinha secured three vital points for his side four minutes into stoppage time, netting a penalty in the 94th minute of the game to send the home fans into hysteria at Elland Road.

Speaking ahead of their next game, Leeds ace Mateusz Klich said: “We need a few more points to stay up. We are safe when we officially stay 100% awake.

“If someone tells you they’re not looking at the table, they’re looking at the table. We have to focus on ourselves and our games are the most important, but if the teams behind us lose games, it helps us. Everyone looks at the table.

Discussing the differences between former boss Marcelo Bielsa and Marsch’s approach to football, Klich revealed:

“It’s more ball and area oriented than man oriented so it’s a bit different but we train every day the manager tells you what to do and it gets easier and I think I I’m getting better and better.

“Before Marcelo, everyone had played zonal so it’s not like we never played that. Even in the national team, I don’t play man to man, I also play zonal.
