Leeds United striker Chris Wood has been talking about the two huge upcoming games The Whites have once the international break is over.
The first game back on Sunday, November 20th is at Elland Road against Newcastle and that will be a sell-out crowd at Elland Road and should be a terrific game.
Garry Monk – Leeds impressive manager
Leeds and Newcastle are the only two non Premier League clubs left in the EFL Cup and we are both away in the quarter finals – we travel to Hull City and Leeds have a plum tie at Liverpool.
Both games are on Tuesday, 29th November and maybe we both go through to the semi-finals on that night?

Chris thinks that Newcastle will be a tougher game than the cup tie at Liverpool, because he thinks the players will enjoy the experience of playing at Anfield and be able to express themselves more.
This is what the striker has said:
“Playing at Anfield is something everybody looks forward to, it’s a massive game but we have a huge game before that against Newcastle with a sell-out crowd.”
“That is going to be the tougher one before we go to Anfield. At least when you go Liverpool you can express yourself and enjoy the moment, it makes it a bit easier.”
Leeds are currently sixth in the Championship on 26 points, which is 11 points behind Newcastle who are 8 points clear of 3rd placed Huddersfield.
We’ve always thought Garry Monk was an excellent manager and he is starting to bring Leeds United through.
And if he is allowed to do his job by the Italian owner Massimo Cellino, then we expect Leeds to be fighting for promotion this season.
That’s the least the long-suffering Leeds fans deserve.
