It’s easy to think that Leeds have got one of the best defensive records in the division.

Given the winning run they’re on right now, it might be easy to forget that they have let a few go in in recent games.

But when it’s laid out in front of you like this, it just makes the whole thing a lot more impressive, because it looks like the Leeds United defence isn’t just competing with those in the second tier, but also with a lot of sides around the world.

Whether this is all down to bringing in Ben White in central defence, Kalvin Phillips taking a step up in his defensive duties, Marcelo Bielsa having another crack at getting his methods across in the summer, or a combination of all three, we may never know.

But one thing is for sure, Leeds United fans can’t get enough of just how well the team has been performing this season, so when @LUFC_Data put up this stat to show that Bielsa’s men have one of the best records in Europe, they could not contain their excitement over it.

Who has been the most important factor in our record?

I wonder if they’ll be able to keep this up for the rest of the season.
