The stat which explains how Leeds have to play at Norwich

Norwich Carrow Road

There is a single stat where Leeds United can press an advantage against Norwich City.

Norwich V Leeds

Leeds United head to Norwich City tomorrow night as underdogs and still searching for a first win under Darko Milanic.

Norwich are currently in the play-off places of the Championship table, while a win for Leeds would move them up the league and to within three points of the Canaries.

Both sides are on runs without victories. For Norwich it’s three games without a win and for Leeds it’s four since Milanic was appointed as the next head coach by Massimo Cellino.

Norwich dominate the key stats between the sides but Leeds are ahead in one vital area; they’re making more tackles.

If Leeds are going to prevent Milanic’s winless run from going any further, they need to be able to stay aggressive and break up the play frequently against Norwich.

The home side have more accurate passes, they have more accurate crosses and have created more chances so it’s clear they can be dangerous from a variety of positions if they are allowed to get on the ball and dominate a game.

Leeds need to show good discipline if they are urged to get stuck in by their manager because Norwich will more than likely play on any early bookings dished out by the referee.

Conclusion: Leeds need to be perfect and Norwich need to have an off night if Milanic is going to put his first digit in the wins column.
