Danny Mills has admitted live on Sky Sports that he’s worried about Leeds United’s Premier League status.

Leeds United now find themselves in a very precarious potion in the Premier League table just two points above the drop zone and Everton, with the Toffees having a game in hand against Watford still to come which may see the Whites drop into the bottom three.

The White have actually only lost once in their last six league games, but that hasn’t been enough to keep up with Burnley’s recent surge up the league table and Everton’s impressive form at Goodison Park, which sees them now at threat of heading back into the Championship.

Mills was asked live on Sky Sports who he fears for the most when it comes to relegation and he said ‘when you look at it on paper, it has to be Leeds and events of last weekend were pretty unpredictable, for Burnley to win and Everton to go and win under immense pressure, to get those results, that’s put Leeds really in it.’

This was a low point in Leeds United's history, but how many points did they get in the 2003/04 campaign?

Danny Mills will be very familiar to Leeds fans as he featured 139 times for the Yorkshire club.

If Leeds are to avoid the drop, they will first have to hope Everton can’t pick up all three points against Watford in a couple of weeks time, while also likely having to pick up at least one positive result from their next two games, which come against Arsenal and Chelsea.

The Leeds United board made a bold decision earlier this year to sack fan favourite Marcelo Bielsa and replace him with Jesse Marsch, which looked to be working when they marked on a five-game unbeaten run, but coupled with their hammering at the hands of Man City last weekend and results around them, that decision will only be more magnified as weeks go by and relation looms larger.
