Leeds United Are 13th In All-Time Premier League Table
League champions going into the revamped top tier in 1992, Leeds were one of the leading sides in the Premier League until their financial troubles took their toll and they were ultimately relegated from the division in 2004.
But in an accumulative table taking all seasons into account, Leeds are ahead of the likes of Leicester City and Crystal Palace on 692 points.
The definition of a sleeping giant in recent years, Leeds sunk as low as League One after experiencing a monumental decline.
But having missed out on promotion last year when they dropped off massively in the latter stages of the season, Marcelo Bielsa has achieved it with the Elland Road outfit at the second time of asking after amassing a club-record 87 points from 44 games.
Leeds' return to the promised land was secured last year when West Brom slipped to a 2-1 defeat away to Huddersfield on Friday night, with the Yorkshire giants potentially being crowned champions this weekend depending on results from those around them.

What's more, they've played 734 games in the Football League, used a total of 268 players and had 15 different permanent managers.
But it was Bielsa, the man they call 'El Loco', who has guided the club back to where they belong. Fans and players alike gathered at the stadium to celebrate last night, while Bielsa was given a huge welcome at his house.
Leeds have been responsible for many classic moments and games in the Premier League and they will be hoping for many more after returning to the big-time.
