Must Watch of the Week
By Daniel Nogueira
Leeds United v. Brighton | 5/15/22 | EPL
The English Premier League is the most exciting league to watch, and this year the drama continues at each end of the standings – each team has one or two matches remaining. At the top of the table, Liverpool (2nd) have kept the title race alive with their win over Southampton but also have West Ham (7th) to thank for holding Manchester City (1st) to a draw. The Must Watch for this week takes us to the other end of the table, where Leeds United (17th) fight to stay out of the relegation zone when hosting Brighton (10th). After watching this match, I took to Thesaurus.com and searched the results for ‘Leeds United’ – it was no surprise that brinksmanship was the top result! The pressure on Leeds to draw or win is palpable, and the gravity of each goal scored in this match is unmistakable. Tune in to see how valuable composure is for a player in such a high stakes match!
Coach Daniel’s Men of the Match: Joe Gelhardt #30 (Leeds)
