Leeds United fans were full of happiness after a defensive statistic about the Whites emerged following their win over Hull City.
The 2-0 win over the Tigers means that Marcelo Bielsa’s side have now kept more clean sheets (12) than they have conceded goals (10) (via LUFC Data).
Is Marcelo Bielsa the best coach in the Championship
Prior to the game against Grant McCann’s side, it emerged that Leeds had conceded the least amount of goals after 20 games since Notts County conceded just eight back in the 1922-23 season (StatsZone via LUFC Data).
Kiko Casilla’s performances in goal have seen various pundits and journalists heap praise on him with The Athletic’s Phil Hay claiming his save against Hull showed he has ‘Champions League credentials’.
Fans displayed their pleasure for the side after the defensive statistic emerged following the Hull win as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:
