Marcelo Bielsa the head coach

Leeds United are on a high after an opening weekend win.

Leeds United's Championship campaign got off to the best possible start as they won a tricky away tie against Bristol City.

Marcelo Bielsa's side outclassed the Robins, winning 3-1 at Ashton Gate.

Clearly Leeds' best XI is up to the task, but the questions remains whether their squad can maintain and hold up this level over the course of a 46 game season.

 

Last season they fell just short, and now last season's top scorer Kemar Roofe is on his way out, with Marcelo Bielsa confirming to Sky Sports that he is set to join Anderlecht.

Former star Paul Robinson is predicting that Leeds end the transfer window strongly.

Speaking to Sky Sports' post-game coverage of the game, Robinson said he has concerns over Leeds' squad.

He said: "You need a squad, you need players to come in.

"I won't be surprised if two or three players come in this week."

Leeds' win yesterday re-emphasised that Marcelo Bielsa is capable of doing something special.

And he needs the backing from the board to give him more.

Another striker will be needed to offset Roofe's loss, and another defender too.

Whites fans will hope Robinson is correct.
