After a barn-storming return to the Premier League last season, things aren't looking so rosy this time out for Leeds United.

With just three points from six games, Marcelo Bielsa's side are still without a win in their Premier League campaign.

True, the Whites have been hampered with more than their fair share of injuries and they have faced several top-six opponents in their opening games, but these factors can't prevent restlessness spreading among the Elland Road faithful.

But there's no cause for concern just yet in the Leeds camp, Rodrigo revealed as he spoke out about creeping doubts after Saturday's loss to West Ham.

"I'm sure things are going to be better for us soon," the striker said. "This is part of football. This kind of situation and moment."

"We are looking forward to the next game."

With 32 games of the season left to play, Rodrigo is right to look ahead to the Whites' next opportunity to pick up points.

Here are some examples of occasions when wayward season starts by Premier League teams made way for more-than-respectable league finishes.
