Leeds United have conceded 13 Goals in three Premier League games

Leeds United have conceded 13 goals in just three games after Spurs put a further three past them at Elland Road.

Games involving Marcelo Bielsa’s side have been chaotic and exciting ever since they returned to the Premier League but the Elland Road outfit have shipped goals left, right and centre this season.

Matt Doherty opened the scoring for Spurs in the early kick-off, before Dejan Kulusevski and Harry Kane added more misery before the half hour mark.

It means Illan Meslier has had to pick the ball out of his net a staggering THIRTEEN times in less than a week.

Manchester United scored four, Liverpool knocked Leeds for six at Anfield on Wednesday and now Spurs have helped themselves to goals galore.

With parking the bus not in their DNA, Leeds have been far too open and susceptible to teams cutting right through them.

They’ve conceded a ridiculous 59 goals in 26 games in the Premier League – the worst in the division ahead of bottom club Norwich City, who’ve shipped 55.

Everton and Aston Villa both put three past them, Manchester City hit seven at the Etihad Stadium and United have scored ten overall after a 6-1 hammering on the opening weekend of the season.

Vulnerable as ever without the likes of Kalvin Phillips, Liam Cooper and Patrick Bamford due to injury, Leeds are just three points ahead of 18th-placed Burnley and the Clarets have two games in hand on their relegation rivals.
