Leeds United fans are eagerly anticipating news of Javi Gracia’s sacking, but they are not the only ones. Premier League supporters across the country are waiting to see if Sam Allardyce will be appointed as his replacement. Gracia is expected to be dismissed from the relegation-threatened club on Tuesday after a poor run of form left them 17th in the table. With four games left to fight for their Premier League lives, Leeds face title-chasing Manchester City on Saturday. Allardyce has reportedly agreed to take over until the end of the season, and he will be joined by Karl Robinson as assistant manager. However, his appointment could spell bad news for Arsenal, who are relying on Pep Guardiola’s side to drop points in the run-in as they try to reclaim their spot at the top of the table. Allardyce’s links to Leeds could be a bad omen for Arsenal fans ahead of the match at the Etihad this weekend. Since he first took on Man City in 1998 with Notts County, the ex-England manager has faced the Sky Blues 34 times in his career, winning just six games, drawing five and losing the other 23 with various clubs he’s managed over the years. His most recent result was a 5-0 loss against them with now-Championship side West Brom, a season that saw the Baggies suffer relegation to the second tier. Meanwhile, his last win against Man City came in 2014, as West Ham beat them 2-1 at Upton Park – so Gunners fans relying on him to peg Man City back won’t be filled with too much confidence.
