Can Pontus Jansson make it three out of four against Norwich City?

Pontus Jansson scored Leeds United’s only goal of the match against Norwich in this weekend’s reverse fixture at Elland Road earlier this season, and he scored against Norwich once last season as well. He seems to have a knack for scoring against the Canaries, so maybe he’ll continue the habit on Saturday?

On to the links.
