Leicester City, having confirmed their promotion, couldn’t help but make a few small jabs at Leeds United.


After Leeds’ crushing 4-0 loss to Queens Park Rangers last Friday, the Foxes were confirmed to be back in the Premier League right away. It’s safe to say they’ve loved sticking a fork in the Whites’ ass.


Leeds’ chances of catching up to them through automatic promotion are essentially gone today that Ipswich Town won their crucial away game against Coventry City last night, 2-1.


After 45 games, Ipswich leads Leeds by three points. They know that, come what may, a point against virtually relegated Huddersfield Town at home would be sufficient to secure the victory.


Although it is extremely unlikely, Huddersfield’s manager, Andre Breitenreiter, has insisted that his team will give it their all in the hopes of winning.


Now, Leeds must gather themselves and aim for the play-offs once more, a task Martin O’Neill anticipates will not be easy.


In the Sky Bet Championship game between Leeds United and Leicester City, Ilia Gruev of Leeds United challenges Leicester City’s Stephy Mavididi.

LEEDS, ENGLAND – FEBRUARY 23: Stephy Mavididi of Leicester City is challenged by Ilia Gruev of Leeds United during the Sky Bet Championship match between Leeds United and Leicester City at Elland Road on February 23, 2024 in Leeds, England.


As Leeds’ prospects of finishing in the top two are almost gone, Stephy Mavididi takes another jab at the team. Leicester has been spitting insults at Leeds virtually since promotion was completed. Following confirmation, their initial tweet was, “I Predict a Riot,” a reference to the song that was played at Elland Road following Leeds’ 3-1 victory over the Foxes in February.



The cliché “Leeds are falling apart again” hasn’t been far from the lips of players and supporters, and on Monday at Deepdale, there was also a rendition of “I predict the play-offs.”


Additionally, Leicester forward Stephy Mavididi took to Twitter last night to further poke fun at the Whites following the heaviest blow yet to Leeds’ prospects of finishing in the top two.

Using a clip from Georginio Rutter’s post-match interview following the game between the two teams in February, he tweeted a video of himself brushing his teeth and stated, “I think we are the best team.”


It’s obvious that the interviews and the festivities that evening upset some people in Leicester, but it seems a bit unfair to make fun of someone whose English is at best mediocre.


In the end, though, Leicester may celebrate whatever they choose, and hopefully Leeds can celebrate too later this month when they get promoted via the play-offs.


Farke must select the Leeds players once more.

The play-offs must now take priority, even though Daniel Farke is expected to declare during his press conference that Leeds has a chance on the last day.


Leeds’ players will definitely be depressed at the moment given their situation during the international break and Leicester’s recent taunts.


But Leeds have a second shot in the play-offs, so Farke needs to do all in his power to get them back up and playing.


Leeds must take advantage of Saturday’s match against Southampton to resume their winning ways and gain some confidence before a crucial few weeks.
