Leeds United fans confused by Pontus Jansson’s deterioration this season

Leeds United were beaten 3-1 by Leicester City in the fourth round of the EFL Cup at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night, and Whites fans were once again unimpressed and confused by Pontus Jansson’s performance.

The Sweden international was one of their star players last season and at points earlier in this campaign, but he returned to the starting line-up in the east Midlands having been dropped to the substitutes’ bench for the 3-0 win against Bristol City on Saturday.

However, the 26-year-old centre-back failed to impress against the Foxes and while he should have done better with the first Leicester goal following a mix-up in the Yorkshire outfit’s backline, he was then beaten to the ball by Islam Slimani for the second.

Leeds supporters were quick to have their say on his showing via social media and while some simply asked “what’s happened to him?” others described the usually dominant defender as a “bag of nerves”.
