Ahead of Leipzig's weekend clash with FC Koln, Die Roten Bullen entered Matchday 5 on just 3 points, beating (and battering) only Stuttgart in their opening four fixtures. It's safe to say that's far from the start Jesse Marsch would have been hoping for in his first five matches at Red Bull Arena. 13th place is not necessarily a reflection of how they've played so far this season, but it is also certainly not where anyone would have thought they'd be at this stage. So what has gone wrong for Jesse Marsch's team so far? We take a look at some of the key issues in our latest tactical analysis.

Leipzig fans will be hoping Silva carries over that kind of form to his new club, and finishes where Timo Werner left off two seasons ago. But now under the influence of Jesse Marsch, how will Andre Silva fit in?
