Leeds United are in a strong position heading into a very busy part of the season, with Marcelo Bielsa’s side just three points from top spot.

Whilst the nature of the 4-1 defeat to West Brom last time out will be concerning, the reality is that the Whites have been excellent in this campaign and look like genuine contenders.

It leaves Leeds with a lack of recognised defensive options as Jansson joins Gaetano Berardi and Luke Ayling on the injury list, which Bielsa will look to have resolved as quickly as possible with a busy festive period edging ever closer.

His form has been questionable itself recently and Leeds will have untested duo Will Huffer and Kamil Miazek in support until January.
