Leeds United: Fans left frustrated with statistic regarding expected goals - Leeds United

Leeds United fans were left frustrated after a statistic about the goals expected from them in their draw at home to Cardiff City emerged.

According to LUFC Data, the xG stat recorded showed the Whites were supposed to score 4.02 goals against the Bluebirds, the highest expected goals value since Marcelo Bielsa took over.

Fans were left feeling frustrated after Neil Harris’ side made the comeback with one supporter calling it a ‘freak’ result.

Leeds seemed to dominate the vast majority of the match as they notched up a mammoth 25 shots to Cardiff’s 10 (via BBC)

In fact, Marcelo Bielsa’s side dominated proceedings so much, their shots on target (8) was just two less than Cardiff’s total number of shots at goal (10).

Fans were left frustrated with the statistic, which suggested that they should’ve won easily, as they took to Twitter to react.

Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:
