'Of Everton, Burnley And Leeds United, Leeds Are The More DESERVING To Stay Up'

Leeds United have been called the 'more deserving' team to stay in the Premier League ahead of relegation rivals Everton and Burnley.


The race to escape the drop took another twist on Sunday afternoon with Everton's 1-0 victory over Chelsea.

Frank Lampard's side are still in the bottom three, but now one point behind Burnley and Leeds with a game in hand.

Norwich City are already down and Watford's chances of survival are nigh on impossible, meaning it'll be one of Everton, Leeds or Burnley to join them in the Championship.

TalkSPORT trio Simon Jordan, Jim White and Danny Murphy all want Leeds to stay up over the other two.

Jordan said: "I genuinely don't know [who else goes down]. I would've said Burnley were dead and dusted. I do think at this moment in time, as much as it pains me, the bottle is spinning to Leeds."

White agreed which saw Jordan state: "For me again, I don't want it to be Leeds because Leeds are a huge club that I admire. If you're looking at these teams saying 'who do you want to stay up?', I know who I want to stay up. Who would you want to stay up out of these three?"

Murphy and White both eventually agreed they'd rather see Leeds stay up and Burnley go down, with Murphy adding why.

The former Premier League midfielder explained: "My memories of playing in big stadiums with great supporters, Leeds games were much bigger for me than Burnley."

Jordan then followed up with: "I think Leeds are probably, with the way they've come into the Premier League and with the injuries they've had this season, I think they are the more deserving of those three to stay up."

Leeds sacked Marcelo Bielsa in February and hired Jesse Marsch, who did manage to go five games unbeaten.

A draw to Crystal Palace on Monday and 4-0 hammering at the hands of Manchester City has seen them dragged back into it, with Burnley now the form team of the trio.

The Clarets parted company with long-time boss Sean Dyche last month and placed caretaker Mike Jackson in charge.

Since then they've taken ten points from 12 games and scored six goals.

Everton, meanwhile, are one of six Premier League teams to never go down and will be hoping to stay up after a disastrous campaign.

Who do you think will be relegated from the Premier League?
