Whether or not the Whites have turned a corner completely after some woeful recent performances remains to be seen but, after a rocky start, Jesse Marsch seems to be having a positive influence on his new players.

There is no denying that it has been a challenging season for the United squad. Between injuries and managerial change, it has proved hard for the players to settle into a rhythm, which is reflected in the Whites' perilous Premier League position.

In his post-match interview after the Wolves win, Rodrigo addressed the difficulty.

"It's true that it hasn't been an easy season for us, with many difficult moments, a change of coach, and everything," he said.

"But that's it - it's part of football. I think this group give everything for this club and that's the most important part."

Bridled by defensive disorganisation and a toothless attack, the fight and tenacity shown by Leeds in their recent victories might be the thing that keeps them in the top flight.
