​Leeds boss Marsch confident about Premier League survival

Leeds United coach Jesse Marsch does not fear relegation at this moment.

The Elland Road club were beaten 2-1 by Arsenal after an extremely poor first half showing.

Despite battling back in the second period with ten men, Leeds could not claim a point, and are now in the bottom three of the Premier League.

Asked point-blank whether he felt his side could avoid the drop, Marsch told reporters post-game: "Yeah, I do. I do believe that.

"And I knew going into these three matches against City again, Arsenal, against Chelsea, that picking up points was going to be incredibly difficult. I knew that we still could manage to find some points.

"Right now, if we beat Chelsea I would walk away from the three matches and go if you asked me before three points from the three matches I would say ok, that's ok. That'll help us.

"So right now obviously we failed the first two tests and we have another massive test Wednesday night against a team that has a little more rest than us and we've just got to turn around, find a way to stay strong, put a group on the pitch that's going to do whatever it takes like they did in the second half and find a way to get our points.

That's the only focus right now."
