Leeds United: Fans pleased after statistics emerge following win over Reading

Leeds United fans were left feeling pleased with the side after some statistics emerged from their narrow win over Reading.

At the beginning of the season, the Whites possessed one of the best defences in England’s top four divisions and among the top five leagues in Europe as they let in 10 goals in just 21 Championship games. However, a drop in form from December through to the start of February has seen Brentford overtake the Yorkshire outfit as the league’s best defensive side (via WhoScored).

However, they were back to their best against Reading as they reduced the Royals to just two shots on target (via BBC). Mark Bowen’s men were also able to play just four passes into Leeds’ penalty area with the Elland Road outfit looking solid at the back (via LUFCDATA). Fans were left complimenting the backline as they took to Twitter to react to the stat about their opponent’s lack of attacking threat.

One fan called the stats ‘impressive’, whilst another called it Marcelo Bielsa’s ‘new philosophy’.

Here are some of the reactions from other supporters:
