Leeds: Fans stunned as corners stat reflects badly on Marcelo Bielsa

Leeds: Fans stunned as corners stat reflects badly on Marcelo Bielsa - Leeds United

Loads of Leeds fans have been reacting to a shocking statistic which shows just how poor they have been from corners this season, as @From_The_Wing revealed that the Whites have the worst conversion rate in the entire Championship.

Leeds fans know all about their set-piece troubles, with some supporters even joking about the ‘wizardry’ on display when Virgil van Dijk headed Liverpool in front against Manchester United at the weekend. However, when the stats are laid bare in table form, it really does show just how poor the club have been from what is a genuine chance to score goals.

Indeed, the top of the table sees the likes of Charlton, Birmingham, Swansea and five other teams scoring from more than 1 in every 20 corners with conversion rates of over 5%. Marcelo Bielsa’s side however have scored just three times from 211 corners this term, which is a meagre 1.42%.

To make matters worse, their total of 211 corners is by far the highest in the league thanks to the way they dominate possession and create chances, shining even more light on a huge hole in Bielsa’s coaching theory – for all his brilliance, he is clearly not devoting enough time to set-piece coaching.

Take a look at some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
