Leeds United are one of the sides to beat this season in the Sky Bet Championship and have got themselves plenty to shout about at the moment after a good campaign so far.
They and West Bromwich Albion appear to be the two sides that need to be caught in the race for the promotion places with them stealing a march on the rest of the league.
The likes of Fulham and Nottingham Forest will feel as though they can also battle it out for the top two but at the moment it’s the Whites and the Baggies that are making the most progress towards the Premier League.
There are plenty of reasons behind why the Whites are doing exactly that as well, with one such example being provided by LUFC DATA on Twitter concerning most successful passes in the final third:

Three Leeds players make this list and it’s testament to the progressive nature of their play and their ability to win the ball high up the pitch that that is the case.
Bielsa’s pressing game came in fits and starts in his first campaign, but the boss’ transformation is really taking shape in his second year at the helm.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
