Leeds United fans have been left stunned after one defensive statistic about the Whites emerged.
According to LUFC Data, the opposition have not created a single ‘big chance’ in 11 out of the Whites’ 21 Championship games so far this season.
Leeds’ opponents have failed to create a single big chance in 11 of our 21 Championship matches (52%) this season. ELEVEN. 💪

This doesn’t prove surprising when looking at other defensive stats like goals conceded, where the Yorkshire side have shipped just 10 goals in their 21 games this campaign. This is the best among teams in the top five leagues in Europe and in the top four divisions of England (via LUFC Data).
All this means is that a mixture of Kiko Casilla and the defence has seen the side keep a mammoth 12 clean sheets so far this term.
Is Kiko Casilla the best goalkeeper in the Championship?
Some fans were left in disbelief by the fact opposition teams have failed to create ‘big chances’ in 11 of their league games so far this campaign as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:
That’s a ridiculous stat, probably one of the most ridiculous since Bielsa took over. Imagine going back to “normal” football after Bielsa…

Wow. The players look far more confident with the system this season making decisions on the pitch to suit the oppositions style of play, Bielsa tweaking in areas of the game. We are in a far better place this season, with the experience of last season & a second season with MB
