Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa will hope for a better defensive performance when his side rocks up at Sheffield United on Sunday.

Leeds have conceded and scored seven goals apiece over two games, having lost 4-3 to Liverpool on opening day, before beating Fulham by the same score last weekend.

Bielsa will have earmarked this clash with the Blades as one of the Premier League fixtures Leeds must win to ensure they are well away from the drop zone come May.

But United boss Chris Wilder will be keen to impose on the visitors a tub-thumping Bramall Lane display after two defeats from their opening two games.

The Blades head into Sunday’s tie following Monday’s narrow loss to Aston Villa and won’t want to go three on the bounce here.

Our prediction: Sheffield United v Leeds

The Blades have lost their last five Premier League outings and are struggling to score this season.

But one thing we’ve learned from Leeds over the past month is that their top-flight matches will likely provide plenty of goals at both ends.

Don’t be surprised to see the ball in the net early on here. Leeds will hope to blow their Yorkshire rivals away, but it could remain close until the end.

Our prediction: Sheffield United 2-3 Leeds
