Leeds fans hail ‘tank’ Pontus Jansson after Derby win

Pontus Jansson completed 90 minutes in the win over Derby County on Friday night – and some of the Leeds United fans on Twitter raved about his performance.

The Whites bounced back from three consecutive defeats in all competitions to beat Derby 2-0 in the Championship at Elland Road.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side extended their lead to five points at the top of the league table, as they put in a dominating display against a potential promotion rival.

Kemar Roofe continued his brilliant goalscoring form with a 20th minute effort which he flicked in at the near post, while Jack Harrison added a second from close-range at the beginning of the second-half.

A selection of Leeds fans singled out Jansson on social media for his performance in the heart of defence.

The centre-back was mainly untested defensively and had his usual partner Liam Cooper back alongside him to help tighten up the backline.

Jansson demonstrated his quality from playing out from the back with a string of dribbles forward and long-range passes.

Here are some of the Leeds fans on Twitter praying favourite Jansson:
