Whilst LUFCDATA shared a rather alarming stat on Twitter during Leeds United’s match against Fulham on Saturday afternoon, it appeared many of the club’s faithful were not too surprised to see it.
Leeds have now conceded FIVE goals from the last six shots on-target faced.

According to the data that they have gathered, it is claimed the Whites have conceded five goals from the last six shots that they have faced that were on target; figures that could bring some doubt over Kiko Casilla’s recent performances.
Interestingly, it would be difficult to blame the former Real Madrid man completely, as he has been a standout for Marcelo Bielsa’s side for the majority of the Championship campaign to this point.
Indeed, the veteran shot-stopper has managed to keep 12 clean sheets in his 23 matches so far, having conceded just 15 goals in the process (TransferMarkt) – numbers that are, perhaps, nothing short of exceptional.
However, it appears fans aren’t too surprised by Leeds’ latest slump and that, if anything, it seems it was something that had been expected as it happens so routinely for those at Elland Road.
Here are just some of their thoughts…
Have to say it… same thing that cost us promotion last season

You might get a bigger surprise if you look at the last 12 months. A regular trend.
