Leeds have been this season’s entertainers in the Premier League with no side seeing more than their 3.71 goals per game, though with that comes inconsistency as you never know which side of a big scoreline Marcelo Bielsa’s side are going to be on.
It’s a bit of a contrast to their record in the EFL under the Argentine, as they had one of the best defensive records in Europe over that two-year spell, and against a side who don’t possess the firepower that the Premier League sides do, we cold see something similar to the Leeds of old, though it won’t be easy.
This is the biggest game to ever happen in Crawley, and although fans won’t be in attendance, they may feel more confident than you’d expect.
Indeed, the Red Devils are now on a nine match unbeaten run dating back to the previous round of this competition in which they came through their clash with AFC Wimbledon with an impressive 2-1 victory, while their recent form has elevated them into the play-off places, prompting talks of a promotion push.
When they returned to the FA Cup in 2010, Crawley were impressive start to life back in the knockout competition, going W10-D2-L3 from their opening 15 games, a run which included two runs to the fifth round, though since then it’s been downhill having failed to get past this round in any of the last eight seasons, while they’ve fallen at the first hurdle in five of the last six seasons and winning just two of their last 13 games.
Both Teams To Score
On recent form alone, there’s little to suggest that Leeds can put in a compact and resolute defensive display here.
Indeed, only West Brom have conceded more goals than Bielsa’s side in the Premier League this season, and although their hosts operate three leagues below them, they are the league’s second top scorers and will be full of confidence.
Both teams have netted in nine of their last 10 outings and there’s no reason to suggest that trend won’t continue here.
Max Watters Top Score Anytime
Max Watters has been their top scorer this season and his form has attracted attention from a host of both EFL and Premier League clubs as a move up the divisions is looking likely this window.
The 21-year-old Englishman has 16 goals in 18 games so far this season, and has scored in each of their last two FA Cup games so if he were to start here we’d expect him exploit the gaps that the visitors tend to leave in their backline and increase his goal tally for the season as well stake a claim for a move away in the coming weeks.
