Exclusive: Pontus Jansson delivers verdict on Leeds United’s defeat to Norwich



Pontus Jansson has admitted that Leeds United conceded goals at bad moments in last weekend’s defeat to Norwich City. 

Leeds were given a rude awakening in last Saturday’s crunch clash at Elland Road, with Norwich inflicting Marcelo Bielsa’s side’s seventh defeat of the season so far.

The Canaries were 3-1 winners, with Daniel Farke’s side clinical within their performance.

That’s something Jansson noted when catching up with Football League World this week.

“Norwich are a good team, an effective team. They scored their chances, which we didn’t,” the Swedish centre-back stated.

Mario Vrancic’s free-kick had put Norwich into an early lead before Teemu Pukki doubled that advantage.

From there, Vrancic scored a third, with Patrick Bamford’s late goal nothing more than a consolation for Leeds.

Jansson was particularly frustrated with the timing of Leeds’ concessions.

“The goals came in bad moments, it isn’t good to concede after five minutes,” he continued.

“We were good after that and came close to an equaliser, but they scored the second in a really bad moment just before half-time. All the goals came in really bad moments for us.  

“But that’s how it is, you just focus on the next one.”

Leeds’ attention now turns to Saturday’s important trip to the Riverside Stadium to face Middlesbrough, with the Whites looking to return to winning ways against another promotion rival.

Earlier in the season Leeds drew 0-0 with Tony Pulis’ side at Elland Road.
