Defensive Stability

It might not have been pretty at times but Leeds’ success last season was built on a solid defensive foundation, a backline that could soak up pressure and allowed them to play on the break.

Bartley was a key part of that. Leeds have let in 39 league goals already this season from just 31 games, whereas they only conceded 47 from 46 last time around.

Injuries haven’t helped but there is no doubt that Leeds have been more fragile defensively this time around, unable to find a combination that is solid and reliable and Bartley’s departure has been a major factor.
