Confidence will be sky high for Leeds United this weekend following their superb display against Manchester City last time out.

The Whites moved up into the top half of the table after a Stuart Dallas brace secured a dramatic 2-1 win over league leaders Manchester City at the Etihad.

But Marcelo Bielsa has been eager to point out just how far his side still have to go if they are to consistently compete with the biggest teams in the division.

Speaking in a press conference this week, he said: “If we guide ourselves from what’s happened this season, from the results or performances, we can see that against the traditional top six, only against Arsenal were we able to play as equals, in the first half of the first game we played against them at home.

“The second half of that game we played with one man more.

“In the game against Manchester United, we did not deserve a better result than the one we obtained. Perhaps, the margin should not have been so high, but they still deserved their win, the same with Tottenham.”

Leeds come up against Liverpool on Monday evening.

Despite impressing hugely in their last outing against the Reds, the Elland Road outfit were still unable to avoid a 4-3 defeat in a thrilling encounter on the opening day of the season.

Here are today's biggest transfer stories and the latest team news involving Leeds and the rest of the Premier League, as the reaction to last weekend's action continues:
