Leeds United’s backline has been the backbone to their success so far this term as they currently boast the best defensive record in the Championship.
It would have been fair to have thought that United would have struggled at the back this term after selling Pontus Jansson, a man who was named in last season’s PFA Team of the Year, but they’ve been even stronger than ever.

The Yorkshire Evening Post’s chief football writer rhetorically asked on Twitter ‘who deserves the plaudits?’ after pointing out United’s incredible defensive record.
Graham Smyth gave his thoughts in an article attached to his tweet, and he made a case for the whole team being important, but the fans’ replies show exactly who they think deserves the most credit for their resolute performances at the back.
It’s clear to see that many Whites supporters believe Ben White is the man who has been at the forefront of Leeds’ defensive brilliance.
Here’s what the Elland Road faithful have been saying on Twitter…
Ben white has massively improved us and Kiko has become much more efficient

Ben White – our best Centre-Back since the days of Radebe/Woodgate/Ferdinand. Brighton must have some seriously good defenders to be sending him out on loan.
