Leeds United are in a difficult run of form so far in January - but the season overall has been a strong one.

Marcelo Bielsa's side have lost all three games this month and are yet to score a goal in 2021.

The Whites, though, still sit 12th in the Premier League with 23 points from 18 games this season.

Defeat to League Two outfit Crawley Town coupled with losses against Tottenham Hotspur and Brighton have raised questions from outside of West Yorkshire once again over the Whites.

Despite a disappointing run - made worse by FA Cup embarrassment - Leeds supporters still have plenty to shout about this term and have come to the defence of their head coach.

Here's the latest round-up from across social media in our daily social media talking points...

@EastStandUpper Reminder: #lufc are playing in our first Premier League season in 16 years – and are doing so after the shortest ever pre-season in which to prepare and recruit for it. We're also playing without the benefit of the best backing in the game. In context, we're doing just fine.

@Chr15PG - @LUFC last 4 PL games...

W2, L2, GD+2. In that same time...

L’Pool - P4, W0, D3, L1, GD-1

Chelsea - P4, W1, D1, L2, GD-3

Wolves - P4, W0, D1, L3, GD-3

Toon - P4, W0, D1 L3, GD-4

Palace - P4, W1, D1, L2 GD-2.

The media: “Leeds wheels are coming off”

@AllLoveLeeds If you’d said to me in summer that on 19th January 2021 Leeds United would be in 12th place in the Premier League on 23 points with 18 games played (9 points off 6th spot and 11 points clear of 18th) I’d metaphorically have ripped both your arms off and legs off!! #lufc #MOT

@StevieDee710 #lufc Clearly injuries and confidence are taking their toll. Used to get downbeat about results but this team is still building. We’re in with the elite again & have shown how capable we are. Keep the faith #LeedsUnited we will get better & more consistent.

@jgill1986 Mid table championship to mid table PL. Bielsa is a legend. Good night #lufc

@theadelites Project Big Picture: Big 6 are the most entertaining teams, we should form a breakaway league.

Also the Big 6:

Man City 1 Arsenal 0

Man Utd 0 Arsenal 1

Man City 1 Liverpool 1

Man Utd 0 Chelsea 0

Chelsea 0 Spurs 0

Man Utd 0 Man City 0

Liverpool 0 Man Utd 0
