Everton’s shock win over Chelsea at the weekend has brought them within two points of Leeds with a game in hand and it has made the relegation fight tighter going into the last few games of the season.


Leeds lost to Manchester City at the weekend and are set to face Arsenal and Chelsea in their next two games as things start looking bleak for their survival hopes.



Dorigo insisted that Leeds cannot allow negativity to poison their minds at this stage of the season and stressed that they do not need a miracle to stay in the Premier League yet.


He pointed out that Leeds still have a solid chance of being in the Premier League and believes the Chelsea game at home next week should be looked at as a prospect to get vital points on the board.



The former White wrote in his column for the Yorkshire Evening Post: “There’s no point being negative – that’s not going to help anyone.


“What you’ve got is 12 points left, four games, plenty to go at. If it was one game left and we needed a miracle, then we’d have a big problem but this isn’t that situation.



“This is still eminently doable.


“Everton beat Chelsea, we’ve got Chelsea at home so why can’t we beat them?


“You have to remain on that front foot and it was going to be difficult to take anything from the City game but what positives can we take forward? I saw quite a few.


“That’s what the boys and Jesse will be taking into the next game.”


Leeds are still level on points with Burnley, who have climbed up to 16th in the league table on the back of getting ten points from their last four games.
