Leeds top possession charts for Championship and are third overall in top two divisions of English football.
When comparing the @premierleague and @SkyBetChamp possession percentages so far this season, #LUFC rank third behind #MCFC and #CFC. #MUFC are closely followed by #BrentfordFC who are also on 56%. #EFL #MOT #PL pic.twitter.com/ixtfm8rI15— StatZone (@StatZoneSports) October 17, 2018
It’s not a surprise to see that Leeds are the top of the Championship, and while it’s a different league, it’s still not surprising to see Leeds are third overall, leading all but two Premier League teams in possession stats.
Of course, possession without goals is kind of meaningless, but at least this shows that Leeds are still playing the right way and that goals will come. Good underlying numbers such as possession means that Leeds will hopefully avoid any late collapse this season.
