Leeds supporters hail goalscorer Jansson as Swansea win takes them back on top

Pontus Jansson got the ball rolling as Leeds make the most of Norwich’s slip-up at Preston to back to the top of the Championship with a 2-1 win over Swansea last night.

Leeds United needed a big result and performance against Swansea last night to get back on track after a rocky run of recent form and that’s exactly what they got.

A 2-1 victory over the Swans takes Marcelo Bielsa’s men back to the Championship summit as Norwich crashed to a 3-1 defeat against Preston.

Pontus Jansson set the ball rolling for the Whites at Elland Road last night as he opened the scoring to celebrate his birthday in perfect style.

Jansson took to Twitter after the crucial win to praise the unity within the squad and the supporters loved it on a night where their promotion bid got a much-needed boost.

A cheeky celebration was also in view when the Sweden international found the back of the net and Bielsa’s men look like they’re enjoying themselves once more – and so are the supporters.

They love it when Jansson does the business – he’s turned into something of a cult figure at Elland Road – and we’ve put together some of the best reaction…
