Leeds United take on Sheffield United at Elland Road today, and it shouldn’t come as a surprise that both teams have two of the better performers in the Championship this season, as the Yorkshire rivals come in 2nd and 3rd in the table.
Top 1⃣ and 2⃣ for most chances created in the @SkyBetChamp this season. Here's how midfielders Pablo Hernandez and Olli Norwood compare ahead of this weekend's Yorkshire Derby. #EFL #LUFC #MOT pic.twitter.com/21sIF4VpKT— StatZone (@StatZone) March 15, 2019
Pablo Hernandez of Leeds and Olli Norwood have been the straws that stir the drink for Leeds and Sheffield United respectively, and if either team is to win today, they will have to ensure that their playmaker is able to unlock the other team’s defence.
Here’s hoping that Leeds will be able to limit Norwood’s chances while Hernandez will be able to be the wizard he’s been all season.
EDIT: Here are the lineups
