Leeds United’s Joe Gelhardt versus Lionel Messi

Merson continued Sky Sports News (4:22 p.m. May 15, 2022): “I thought the boy in advance, Gelhardt, he is a role model. The boy was outstanding.”

The Englishman added: “His ability to score is amazing. If Messi had done that, we would have gone insane for years.”

Big result

We think the draws against Brighton and Hove Albion at Elland Road is a great result for Leeds.

Yes, a win would have been better but the Whites are now out of the bottom three of the Premier League.

Leeds has 35 points from currently 37 games.

Burnley, third from bottom, has 34 points from 36 games.

Leeds are still very much at risk of relegation to the Championship but at least they now have a good chance of escaping relegation.
