The Whites’ next two top flight games will see them go up against Everton and Chelsea, respectively, with both teams currently in the top six of the current Premier League standings. 


Both games will be in hostile territory for Marcelo Bielsa’s side, starting with a trip to Merseyside at the weekend followed by the Stamford Bridge game, set to be played on 5th December. 




The Toffees and the Blues will both try to play on the front foot against the Premier League new boys in Matteo’s opinion and he feels Leeds will have plenty of opportunities against teams that do not sit back and are overly defensive.


Matteo also went on to stress the importance of Leeds’ players maintaining their discipline and keeping a level-head on the pitch with big games now coming in thick and fast for the Yorkshire giants as season the progresses.


“And now Leeds have to face two good sides in Everton and Chelsea, who are going the right way and playing the right brand of football”, Matteo wrote in his column in the Yorkshire Evening Post.



“Both will feel they can beat Leeds and I think it will suit the Whites, coming up against players who have a go, who aren’t as defensive.


“I always found Everton one of the hardest places to go to. I got sent off there for Leeds after about 20 minutes.



“Discipline, which very nearly cost Arsenal, is something Leeds have to be so aware of because losing a player would really affect the squad, Kalvin especially because everyone knows how important he is.


“These will both be difficult games and interesting ones, but Leeds should be full of confidence after a clean sheet.”


Leeds are currently 14th in the league standings with eleven points from their nine league outings, winning three games and losing four, while splitting the points in the other two.
