Former Arsenal attacking midfielder Paul Merson predicted on the Sky Sports Daily show on Sky Sports News on Friday morning (11:20am, October 13, 2017) that Leeds United will win against Reading this weekend.
Leeds will return to action on Saturday afternoon when they take on Reading at home in the Championship.
The West Yorkshire outfit will head into the match against the Royals at Elland Road on the back of a 3-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday away from home at the Hillsborough Stadium in the league.
Former Arsenal star Merson has backed the Whites to pick up all three points from the encounter courtesy of a 1-0 win.
“I think this is a good game for Leeds, Reading not doing great, Leeds just going through a little bad patch.”
Reading's start to the season has been far from impressive, and it is hard to see the Royals win at Elland Road.
Although Leeds’s recent results and performances have not been great, Thomas Christiansen’s side should be able to manage a win.
Playing at home is going to give Leeds an advantage as well against Jap Stam’s Reading.
