Leeds United are currently having one of the best football seasons they had throughout their national league history. After a strong 10 year run in the E.F.L. Championship, they have finally managed to reach the top of their leaderboard last year, coming in at first place in the championship, clutching a healthy promotion into the premier league for the first time since 2003, where they had been relegated after winning just 8 out of 38 league matches played, while being managed by the hands of Peter Reid and later on by Eddie Gray.

Now, Leeds United know well that in order to keep their spot in one of the most prestigious leagues in the world, they need to work harder than they ever have before, as they are competing with teams of unmatched skill amongst the leagues they played in during their recent past.

Currently, in December 12th, 2020, Leeds are at the 13th place on the table, with 13 matches played, 5 wins, 2 draws, and 6 losses, giving them a total of 17 points, which is not too shabby for a team that just got promoted to such a high-tier competition for the first time in 16 years!
