Former Aston Villa forward Gabby Agbonlahor has given his verdict of Leeds United and Jesse Marsch so far this season ahead of his old club’s trip to Elland Road this weekend.
The Villans sit 15th in the table after their opening seven league games, winning twice, drawing once and losing four times.
Gerrard’s team ran out 1-0 winners against Southampton in their last league outing thanks to Jacob Ramsey’s first-half goal.
As for Leeds, despite a strong start to the season which included a 3-0 win over Chelsea, they are without a victory in their last three fixtures and fell to a 5-2 defeat to Brentford in their previous match.
The Whites sit four places above Villa in the table and have a game in hand. Speaking ahead of the fxture on Sunday (4.30pm kick-off), talkSPORT pundit Agbonlahor has said Leeds ‘aren’t a team you want to play at Elland Road’ this season.
He said on the station (via MOT News) : “It’s a big game.
“Gerrard getting the win against Southampton.
“He is going to be demanding as they went to Leeds and beat them last season.
“But Leeds, they aren’t a team you want to play at Elland Road. They are looking like a good team this season.”
