After having almost 48 hours to digest the win over Hull, it’s clear to see that the performance was better than I and many others gave credit for. Leeds have been so good so far this season that our tolerance level for sloppy play is dramatically low.
If we’d put that performance in during any other season over the past 15 years, it’d have been one of the highlights of the year. We dominated Hull from start to finish and if not for some poor finishing, the game ends up 3 or 4-0.
With all that in mind, who in the Leeds team shined the brightest?
Jansson was a dominant force in the defence which now looks extremely balanced on the whole, although in typical Leeds fashion Barry Douglas is now injured. Pontus was first to every 50/50 and didn’t give the Hull forwards a sniff all game. There was a moment where the ball was cleared from the Hull box into our midfield and Jansson just came sprinting out of absolutely nowhere to get there first when he really had no right to.
We saw how talented he is in Garry Monk’s season but the effort seemed to be lacking slightly under Christiansen and co. We’ve got the Jansson back now that Premier League teams will likely be bidding for in January. His passing was much improved as well after a few poor games on that front.
