Time running out for Marsch? Another disastrous result has Leeds staring down relegation
- Leeds lose yet again
- Club now facing relegation fight
- Marsch in hot seat due to continued struggles
WHAT HAPPENED? Leeds lost 1-0 to Nottingham Forest, with the club now winless since November. With the loss, Leeds now sit 17th in the Premier League, level with 18th-place Everton with one game in hand, which comes this Wednesday at Manchester United.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Pressure is mounting on Marsch, with Leeds continuously dropping points against fellow relegation contenders. The club has now lost each of their last five Premier League games against teams in the bottom half of the table and they're now very much fighting for survival in the Premier League.
IN THREE PHOTOS:
Leeds' away record has been abysmal...
4 - Since leaving FC Red Bull Salzburg in 2021, Jesse Marsch has won just four of his 23 away league games as a manager (D6 L13), a period covering games with both RB Leizpig and Leeds United. Hot-seat. pic.twitter.com/RCxmrfWsMQ— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) February 5, 2023

Leeds' attack continues to struggle...
It's glorified kick-and-rush. Adding pressing to it doesn't change that.— 11 Yanks (@11Yanks) February 5, 2023
It's one-dimensional, frenetic and ideologically stubborn and it just isn't working.
It's time to move on from Jesse Marsch.
Bielsa is missed by some at Elland Road.
If we’d given Bielsa the level of backing we’ve inexplicably given Jesse Marsch, we’d be competing for europe right now. Absolutely criminal from the clowns running this club.— Wilfried Gnonto Propaganda Account (@AdamJones1995) February 5, 2023
Some Leeds fans have had enough.
This is the ceiling for Jesse Marsch. All the possession, all the opportunities, no cutting edge. There are no more excuses, nowhere else he can take us other than down. Sack him immediately.— ALFIE LS11🇺🇦 (@AlfieLS11) February 5, 2023
WHAT NEXT FOR LEEDS? The club faces a difficult spell as Leeds now face Manchester United in back-to-back Premier League matches.
