The Whites collected seven points from their first three Premier League games, with the 3-0 win over Chelsea a particular highlight.


Leeds have gone winless since then though and there is fear among supporters that the Whites are in for another season of worrying about relegation, after escaping only on the last day in the previous campaign.



Gray wants people to realise that upon Jesse Marsch first taking over managerial duties at Elland Road, Leeds were deep into the fight to avoid the drop and they will not turn into a top six side in just a short amount of time.


The Leeds legend understands fans’ worries but thinks he has seen enough from the Leeds side to say that they will get a good number of points.



Speaking to West Yorkshire Daily, Gray said: “I thought the first half last weekend we were very good but let it slip in the second half.


“But what I think people have got to realise is that when Jesse first came into the club we were fighting a relegation battle, and you don’t just go from avoiding relegation to a top-six side in one go – it’ll take a bit of building.



“Supporters are going to be worried, but I think I have seen enough to think that we’ll get enough points.”


Leeds next face high-flying table-toppers Arsenal and they will be hoping that despite the odds stacked against them they are able to pull off a favourable result.
