Leeds United in April: Next seven Premier League fixtures

Leeds United recently claimed a superb 4-2 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers to breathe new life into their Premier League survival bid this season.

Jack Harrison gave them an early lead before Luke Ayling doubled their advantage in the second half with a low header.

Rasmus Kristensen and Rodrigo also got on the scoresheet as the Whites secured a brilliant win at Molineux

The victory lifted Leeds out of the relegation zone but they are just two points above 18th-placed West Ham United.

Javi Gracia’s side face some testing fixtures next month after the end of the international break. We look at Leeds’ fixtures in April

Arsenal – April 1 (A)

The Gunners are challenging for the league title and will be highly motivated to win all their remaining matches.

Leeds were unlucky to suffer a 1-0 loss in their last league encounter against Arsenal, with Patrick Bamford missing a second-half penalty. 

However, Gracia will be looking to create a huge upset when they travel to the Emirates Stadium to play Arsenal next month. 

Nottingham Forest – April 4 (H)

Forest are one of the top candidates to get relegated this season. Steve Cooper’s side most recently lost 2-1 to Newcastle United at the City Ground.

The Tricky Trees defeated Leeds 1-0 in what proved to be Jesse Marsch’s final game at Elland Road.

They will be eager to repeat the feat now they have home advantage, but Leeds will fancy their chances in this one. 

Crystal Palace – April 9 (H)

Patrick Vieira was sacked after leading Crystal Palace to a winless run in the new year.

Roy Hodgson has been reappointed as manager, but it is debatable if the change will be enough for Palace to retain their top-flight status by the end of the season. 

Leeds will be looking to do better this time against Palace as they previously lost 2-1 at Selhurst Park with Odsonne Edouard and Eberechi Eze on target. 

Liverpool – April 17 (H)

Liverpool are out of the Champions League and have just a top-four finish to fight for.

However, they face intense competition from Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United, Chelsea and Brighton & Hove Albion. 

Jurgen Klopp’s side slumped to a shock 2-1 defeat against Leeds at Anfield in October, meaning the Whites have a rare opportunity to claim a double.

Fulham – April 22 (A)

Nobody expected Fulham to be in this position at the start of the season.

However, they have defied expectations under Marco Silva and are now in contention to secure European football. 

Fulham and Leeds last met in the Carabao Cup, where the Cottagers comfortably won 2-0. They also prevailed 3-2 in the Premier League earlier this season. 

Leicester City – April 25 (H)

Leicester City ended their five-game losing run last week by holding Brentford to a 1-1 draw at the Gtech Community Stadium.

However, with just one point between them and the relegation zone, the Foxes must improve on the run-in ensure their stay in the richest football league

7- Bournemouth – April 30 (A)

There are currently eight teams fighting for survival in the top flight, and Bournemouth are one of them.

They have recorded some impressive results in recent weeks, including a shock 1-0 success over Liverpool.

The Cherries require a few more wins like that to guarantee their survival in the Premier League.
