Leeds United’s finishing hasn’t been the strongest part of their game this season, especially in recent weeks against Arsenal and Sheffield Wednesday. However, the latest revelations comparing the top two sides in the Championship will do nothing to appease the tension felt by supporters.
According to statistics collected by LUFC Data, West Bromwich Albion have scored more goals than the Whites having created 54 fewer chances and 75 fewer shots. However, it wasn’t just the Baggies that were outperforming Marcelo Bielsa’s side in front of goal with Queens Park Rangers having scored two goals more despite having created 87 fewer chances.
The side will be looking to put their woes behind them as they travel to Mark Warburton’s side this afternoon, looking to end their four-game losing streak in London (via WhoScored). Fans were left feeling unhappy after the stats comparing the team’s finishing to Salven Bilic’s side emerged as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:
