Leeds United’s new manager Jesse Marsch is looking to make an impact in his first season at Elland Road

Leeds United are expected to have another difficult season in the 2022/23 Premier League, according to Sky Bet’s latest odds, with the Whites finishing 15th. Leeds were involved in a tense relegation battle last season that was decided on the final day, and the club is now preparing for their first full season under Jesse Marsch. The American has had to work quickly to bring in players who fit his football philosophy, as well as let go of a couple of key players for the club. Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips have both left Elland Road for Manchester City and Barcelona, respectively, and it remains to be seen how much of their absence will be felt on the pitch next season. The club has responded by bringing in six new players, the majority of whom have previously worked under Marsch at RB Salzburg or Leipzig. There is also a youth theme in the additions, with Marc Roca, 25, being the oldest new face so far this summer. Leeds United is a target. If the Whites make one promise, James McAtee may leave the Premier League champions. Putting his faith in younger players can obviously go one of two ways for Marsch and Leeds; if they quickly gel under the American coach’s high-intensity style, it could be a breath of fresh air for the team. However, their lack of experience may be telling of an unforgiving and physically demanding league, making the Whites an unknown entity to outsiders. The team was crippled by injury issues that prevented them from gaining any traction last season, so the main goal this year should be to avoid that by beefing up the squad to make rotation a viable option throughout the campaign, among other things. Overall, the bookies expect Leeds to have another season of ups and downs as they try to cement their place among the top 20 teams in the country.
