Leeds win and go to of the table while keeping yet another clean sheet.
Leeds last conceded a goal in 563 minutes of league football.— Chris Taylor (@LUFCDATA) September 12, 2017
Frank de Boer lasted just 540 minutes of football as Crystal Palace boss.
The club kept yet another clean sheet in the win over Birmingham City, extending the Championship clean sheet streak to six matches. It’s a remarkable stat, even more so when you consider the number of injuries and new players in the side. Last night’s win was much uglier than the match against Burton over the weekend, but keeping a clean sheet and getting a win was as impressive as the brilliant dominating win last Saturday.
Anyway, on to the links.
