Cooper and Jansson-a strong line of defence

Both defenders are certainly pivotal in Leeds’ pursuit of promotion this season.

Cooper, 27, has appeared for more than 30 matches, scoring three goals and providing one assist.

The Swedish centre-back Jansson has also garnered stats similar to Cooper.

However, Jansson was heavily criticized for his poor display in Leeds’ recent slump.

Hernandez- Bielsa’s go-to-guy

The Spaniard continues to defy his age by showing consistency since joining the Whites.

This campaign has proved to be a brilliant one, as the 33-year-old mustered 12 goals and 12 assists to his name so far.

In the process, Hernandez has scored some spectacular goals.

The former Valencia man is the second highest assist provider in the Championship, behind Brentford ace Said Benrahma.

The Whites have suffered back-to-back defeats in the crucial stages of the Championship this season.

Their slip-up has allowed their promotion seeking rivals Sheffield United move up to the second position in the table.

Leeds’ automatic promotion hopes look bleak at the moment and they might end up in the playoffs.
