West Brom midfielder Jake Livermore spoke to reporters ahead of his side's clash with Leeds at the Hawthorns tomorrow, and shared why he believes the visitor's expansive playing style might just play right into his team's hands, as quoted by the Express & Star.
The Baggies have made an inauspicious start to their 2018/19 Championship campaign, and they currently sit in seventh spot in the table, five points adrift of league leaders Leeds.
The Whites head to the Hawthorns tomorrow full of confidence after earning three points away at Wigan last weekend, so West Brom will undoutbedly be in for a tough afternoon.
If Darren Moore's men play to the level that they are capable of, however, Leeds themselves will be in for a really tough match.
Livermore spoke to reporters ahead of tomorrow's clash with the west Yorkshire outfit, and explained why Marcelo Bielsa's men's playing style might just give West Brom a good chance of winning the game, as quoted by the Express & Star:
“They’re coming here to play good football, I’d imagine, and maybe that’ll help us in the system that we’re in. We’ve found it difficult against those teams that try and play a more direct way and sit in – we’ve found that quite difficult. With Leeds coming to play an expansive game and play football, it’ll be a match of football rather than (trying) to disrupt it.”
The game between West Brom and Leeds kicks off at 17:30 and can be seen exclusively live on Sky Sports.
