Leeds fans delighted with Pontus Jansson performance

Leeds United moved three points clear at the top of the Championship table with a 3-0 win over Preston North End at Elland Road on Tuesday night.

Liam Cooper opened the scoring in the 37th minute, before Tyler Roberts netted a second-half brace for the Whites to secure a comfortable three points.

There were a number of players who impressed for the home side, but central defender Pontus Jansson has been picked out for some special attention.

Jansson has not always had the full support of the Leeds fans for a number of reasons, but he was very impressive against Preston, and the Leeds supporters were delighted.

In terms of talent and experience, there are few better defenders in the second tier of English football.

And if the 27-year-old can produce his best form for Marcelo Bielsa’s team this season then there is no reason why the Whites cannot secure a return to the Premier League.
