Leeds ended a 16-year wait last season as they retuned to the top flight and managed a ninth-place finish in the league, all the while earning plaudits for their high-octane football under Marcelo Bielsa.


However, the Whites have struggled for results this season with only three wins in 17 outings, and an embarrassing 7-0 defeat away at Manchester City on Tuesday has seen them drop down to 16th in the standings, just five points above the drop zone.



But former Crystal Palace owner Jordan has insisted that he has no doubts Leeds will be able to avoid relegation this season.


“I do not fear for them [Leeds] in any way, shape or form”, Jordan told talkSPORT while discussing the possibility of Leeds slipping down to the Championship.



Jordan stressed that Leeds are not in as much trouble as many make them out to be and tipped them to maintain their top flight status and end the season in a mid-table spot.


“People are saying, ‘well Palace are doing well’, Palace are doing really well, I like the shape of Palace but they are three points in front of Leeds.



“So, the narrative, it depends on how you want to [see it].


“I know it is one game more but the context, it [the thrashing by Manchester City] is a terrible result.


“But people are talking about Leeds prior to getting tanked by Manchester City, ‘hang on what is happening to Leeds this season?’


“And I do not believe Leeds United are going to get relegated.


“I believe they will go through this season; they will probably finish mid-table.”


Leeds are set to host Arsenal at the weekend and will hope to bounce back with a positive result and claw their way back up the league table.
