Leeds United are due to take on Brentford tomorrow evening at Elland Road.

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa has agreed with a journalist who suggested that Brentford's attack is the best of the teams that the Whites have come up against so far, as reported by Leeds Live.

Leeds have managed to go unbeaten through their first three league games of the season, which have come against Bristol City, Nottingham Forest and Wigan Athletic.


Leeds could face their toughest test yet on Wednesday evening though, as Brentford are thought to be among the leading contenders for promotion.

And Bielsa feels that Leeds’ defence will have to be on guard.

“This is a good reference. You are right,” Bielsa said, when asked if Brentford have the best attack that Leeds have come up against to date.

The comment shows the size of the challenge Leeds face to keep their unbeaten record in tact.

With Liam Cooper and Barry Douglas doubts, Leeds could be down to the bare bones in defence.

And if Brentford’s attack perform to their maximum, Bielsa’s side could face a stern test at Elland Road tomorrow.
