Leeds defender Ben White cuts a dejected figure after sloppy goal is conceded

Championship Picks

Leeds have been impressive this season but against Swansea on Saturday, they failed to attain any points for the first time this term.

Once again they dominated, achieving 61.9% of the possession and having 21 shots.

However, they conceded a devastating late goal that meant they relinquished their lead at the top of the Championship table.

It was a sloppy strike to concede as the Whites didn’t clear their lines with Wayne Routledge then somehow finding the back of the net.

For the Leeds players, it was obviously bitterly disappointing but one man was more dejected than anyone else.

That happened to be the imperious Ben White who despite his defensive efforts couldn’t prevent Leeds from conceding.

In the image above, you can see White sink to the floor as Routledge wheels away in delight after beating Kiko Casilla.

The pure heartbreak in the Brighton loanee’s body is clear to see as he looks a completely broken figure.

It’s a photo that shows just how much the youngster cares, even if he is simply on loan at Elland Road.

But it also sums up the type of player he is. Since walking through the doors at Thorp Arch he has been nothing but exceptional and has quickly become a fan favourite, earning rave reviews after their win against Stoke.

So far this season, the 21-year-old has won 2.5 tackles per game, as well as making a colossal 4.2 interceptions each match. He also has an impressive pass success rate of 87.6%, per WhoScored.

In the frame before the picture above, he desperately tries to throw himself in the way of the ball, something that displayed his dedication and commitment to the cause.

However, for one of the first times this season, White came out second best.
