The 2021/22 English Premier League season is already in full flow, and we are getting to that point of the campaign which has proven to be crucial in other previous EPL seasons. The festive period has always been one of the toughest part of the campaign which always has huge repercussions on how the season will end up for each club.
Basically, club managers do not look forward to the month of December because it is always clogged with consecutive fixtures in the Premier League.
This season, the club with the toughest set of fixtures in the English top-flight is Leeds United.
Marcelo Bielsa’s team will kick off next month’s fixtures with a home tie against the resilient new boys Brentford FC. After that, they travel to Stamford Bridge to renew their rivalry with European champions Chelsea.
Three days later, Leeds United will be on the road again, this time to the City of Manchester stadium to take on defending EPL champions Manchester City, before they welcome the visit of Mikel Arteta’s resurgent Arsenal.
It does not get easier from there as their next fixture is against Liverpool on boxing day, while their last assignment in December will be at home to Aston Villa.
Leeds United have not done so well in their opening eleven fixtures of this English Premier League season. They have collected just 11 points from those eleven games and have won just two matches so far this term.
The team from West Yorkshire have struggled in front of goal this season; scoring just 11 goals in as many matches, while conceding a total of 18 in the process. The ‘Whites’ currently find themselves in 15th position on the log and are just three points above the relegation zone.
Their season could get even worse with the heavyweight fixtures that await them in the month of December.
Marcelo Bielsa will be aware of the task that awaits his team in the festive period and will want to get his boys back in form, if they are to stand any chance against the “big boys” when they clash next month.
