26 apps, 56.5% pass success rate: Good enough for Leeds United’s starting XI?

Published

on

Leeds United’s goalkeeping problems this season have been well documented, with Felix Wiedwald and Andy Lonergan both struggling during to nail down a starting berth.  

Wiedwald started as first choice, but a run of disappointing performances saw him dropped for Lonergan in October, who held the jersey until late November, when Thomas Christiansen recalled his German teammate.

Since then, Wiedwald has been ever-present, with Paul Heckingbottom seemingly set to keep faith with the 27-year-old following his appointment, after an impressive start to 2018 for the Whites.

Here at FLW, we take a look at Wiedwald’s stats this season from his 26 appearances.

Wiedwald has conceded 30 goals during those 26 appearances, but still holds a decent clean sheet record, having kept out the opposition on 11 occasions so far this season, leaving him with a 42.3% clean sheet record.

The faith placed in Wiedwald by Christiansen was down to the goalkeeper’s passing ability, which is also something we have focused on.

The goalkeeper averages 31.3 passes per game, but at a success rate of just 56.5%.
