Leeds United are coming off a great 3-2 win at Carrow Road last time out when a goal one minute into stoppage time by Vieira gave The Whiles all 3 points and Carrow Road is never an easy place to get anything.
And that Leeds’ second win in less than two weeks against the Canaries as the beat them on penalties to get through to the quarter-final of the EFL Cup where they visit Liverpool.
Leeds have been playing well recently and have seven wins in their last 10 games (22 points) and seem to be getting on track under impressive new manager Garry Monk.
Eddie Gray – a fantastic winger in his day
Born in Glasgow and he had so much skill
Leeds United legend Eddie Gray who played as a winger for the Leeds first team for 18 years from 1966 and played 577 games with 68 goals for the Whites.
I remember watching him in the great Leeds United side managed by Don Revie and he was a typical Scottish winger with loads of skill.
Eddie feels upbeat that in their current good form they can compete with Newcastle when we go there a week tomorrow in front of a sold-out Elland Road crowd.
The great Eddie Gray in his heyday
This is what Gray told LUTV:
“Brighton and Newcastle United are the top two teams in the division.”
“But on form and how we played against Norwich, I feel now the players will think that they can compete with any team in the league, including Newcastle and Brighton.”
“It will be interesting to see what happens in the game after the break when Newcastle come here as I think we will be able to compete with them.”
“Whereas at the start of the season we would have been a bit wary at playing a side like Newcastle, you would have been worried about the outcome.”
“But I am not worried about the outcome now.”
Elland Road is sold out for Newcastle United’s visit on 20th November and it should be a competitive game.
Newcastle have won seven league games in a row and in the last 10 games in the league we have eight wins and 25 points.
