Mills: This is when Leeds fans should panic after unprecedented Bielsa reveal
It is “vitally important” Leeds United win their next two Premier League games, according to Danny Mills.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Whites and England full-back delivered his verdict after the club lost 2-1 to West Ham at the weekend and continue their search for their first Premier League win of the season.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side are now winless in their last six league games – their longest run without a victory since he took over in the summer of 2018.
The Yorkshire giants are now third from bottom, behind Newcastle United in 17th on goal difference.
Leeds drew with Newcastle last week and also earned a point against Everton and Burnley earlier this term.
As well as losing to West Ham, they were turned over by Liverpool and Man United.

However, Mills has insisted supporters should not panic until after their next couple of games against Watford and Southampton.
He told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “The next one or two games, there are some winnable games there. If you win those two you go ‘Yes, it’s fine, no bother’.
“That’s the big issue. You’ve got to win these next games, it’s vitally important that you get those points on the board.
“If you do that, then all of sudden, the pressure is off and your back to normality and fans can go ‘Back to reality, that’s all fine, there are no big issues. We carry on as before’.”
Despite their own struggles, Watford and Southampton are both above Leeds in the Premier League table.
Southampton are yet to earn their first victory while Watford have won two of their opening half-dozen fixtures.
