Statistics, they’re a funny old thing.

There’s only really two outcomes when someone produces them at the end of the game.

If a team wins and the stats are in their favour, you can point to them and show ‘look how much they dominated the other side’. If a team wins and the stats show that they were in fact the second-best team on the park that day, then all you need to say is ‘the only stat that matters is on the scoreboard’. So they can matter as much or as little as you want them to, depending on your mood.

In what is a new phenomenon this season for Leeds, in the league anyway, is finding themselves on the wrong end of the latter statement.

The ever-reliable @LUFCDATA produced these statistics to show just how dominant Marcelo Bielsa’s men were on Saturday, however a late goal by Wayne Routledge saw the visitors take all three points.

So how did Leeds United fans react when they saw these figures?

Well it seemed as if their conversion rate was what was worrying a lot of the Elland Road faithful. The hosts had 21 shots in total and created 13 chances, but when you only manage to get three shots on target, you really should be looking at yourself in the mirror.
