After 16 years out of the top tier of English football, Leeds were finally promoted to the Premier league. This was following a dominant Championship victory, which saw them pick up 93 points and finish ten points clear of any other side. That was also following starting as the betting favourites for the title, with many punters supporting them with offers such as the This saw them pick up a number of free bets and offers, as the side finally confirmed the promise and ultimately landing the odds for fans.

Leeds have since made a strong start in their return to the top flight and look more than capable in retaining their position come the end of the season. The side for example kicked off the season, as they took on defending champions Liverpool. Away at Anfield is just about the hardest game of the campaign, so was set to be a major test for the side. Leeds were ultimately beaten but took many positives away, as they were able to score three goals and only lost the match, following a very late penalty converted by Liverpool. The latter won the match 4-3 but this was clear that Leeds were going to be a major force in the league this season.

It is clear that Leeds are playing some very attractive football and it is centred around their attacking line. This was evident again, with the side picking up their first victory back in the Premier league, through a 4-3 home win against newly promoted Fulham. Helder Costa netted a brace and helped the side to the much-deserved victory, as Leeds had already scored seven goals in the opening two fixtures back in the top flight.

Another victory then followed for Leeds, as they won 1-0 away at Sheffield United. This was a different game than the previous results, but Leeds were able to grind out the victory, with Bamford netting the late winner. Leeds then held Manchester City to a 1-1 draw, with the latter only able to produce two shots on target. This was another major positive to take for the side, ahead of the rest of the campaign.

Leeds have since struggled for form despite a 3-0 victory away at Aston Villa, there were consecutive 4-1 defeats to Leicester City and Crystal Palace. They will now be looking to find some form again and continue to push up the Premier league table.
