Jordan said: “I really don’t know [who else goes down]. I would have said Burnley was dead and dusted off. I think right now, although it hurts me, the bottle is spinning towards Leeds.”
White agreed which saw Jordan declare: “For me again, I don’t want it to be Leeds because Leeds are a huge club that I look up to. If you look at these teams and say ‘who do you want to stay? , I know who I want to keep awake. Who would you like to keep awake among these three? »
Murphy and White eventually agreed they would rather see Leeds stay up and Burnley go down, Murphy adding why.
The former Premier League midfielder explained: “My memories of playing in big stadiums with big fans, Leeds games were much more important to me than Burnley.”
Jordan then went on to say: “I think Leeds are probably, with the way they got into the Premier League and with the injuries they’ve had this season, I think they deserve those three the most. remain standing.”
Leeds sacked Marcelo Bielsa in February and signed Jesse Marsch, who managed to go five games unbeaten.
A draw with Crystal Palace on Monday and a 4-0 hammering at the hands of Manchester City got them back in, with Burnley now the trio’s form side.
Since then, they have taken ten points from 12 games and scored six goals.
