Leeds United are tipped to win again.

SkySports pundit David Prutton is tipping Leeds United to continue their impressive start to the season against Birmingham City.

Leeds host Birmingham tonight (12/9) in the Championship and enter the game sitting in second place in the table.

Harry Redknapp's Birmingham have endured a more difficult start, and are in 21st place with just four points compared to Leeds' 14.

Prutton, who previously played for Leeds, believes his former club will record a 3-1 victory - the same score they beat Birmingham by away from home back in May.

They netted five goals at home to Burton Albion at the weekend and are full of confidence.

He told SkySports: "Leeds are starting to look a real team under Thomas Christiansen and absolutely hammered Burton on Saturday.

"Birmingham have signed a lot of players and, while I think the results will start to come, the trip to Elland Road will be too soon for Harry Redknapp's men."

Leeds fans celebrate their team's victory during the Sky Bet Championship match between Leeds United and Derby County at Elland Road on November 29, 2014 in Leeds, England.

Leeds may be looking good at present, but fans have learned in the past that there is always a shock around the corner.

Birmingham have a group of experienced and talented players, including former Brentford star Jota who caused them problems last season.

Their last match against Burton may have been a cakewalk, but it would be surprising if this is as easy.
