Leeds are showing ambition yet another year. After the disastrous second half of the season which saw first Christiansen getting sacked by the club followed by Heckingbottom.

The main talk though is the new manager this summer – Marcelo Bielsa. He is an experienced manager and the expectations upon his team have risen.

Leeds so far has some mixed performances in the pre-season. United managed 3 victories, 2 draws and 1 defeat. The thing that marked most of the games were goals in both nets. Leeds looked sharp up front but shaky at the back.

Stoke got relegated last season from the Premier League and they lost some key players in the summer. It will be interesting to see how Gary Rowett will replace a player like Xerdan Shakiri who joined Liverpool.

Not only that Stoke lost some of their key players but the result in their preparations for the new season are also far from satisfying. The Potters record is 1 victory, 1 draw and 4 losses.

The team failed to score in 4 of those fixtures which raised some questions about the team’s potency up front.

Leeds United vs Stoke City: Head-to-head

  • Leeds failed to score in the last 3 games between the sides at Elland Road
  • Stoke are unbeaten in 3 games against Leeds
  • 5 out of the last 6 meetings saw at least one team failing to score
  • 4 of the last 6 games between the sides had less than 1.5 goals

Leeds United vs Stoke City Predictions

Leeds are trying to build up from last season and Marcelo Bielsa will try to make a statement from the start of the season.

United will be looking for a victory over a bit disheartened Stoke side following their relegation and the disappointing results in the pre-season.

The Argentine manager though has a tendency to neglect a bit the defensive work and we may see goals in both nets.
