Leeds United's Tommaso Bianchi is the Championship's joint most frequent tackler, showing his importance to the Whites side.

The Italian clearly has not struggled to adapt to the physicality of the English second-tier after completing a move from his homeland this summer and he plays a vital function for Leeds.
Often playing at the base of their diamond system, Bianchi has protected the side's defence well and he will be hoping to continue breaking up attacks as the season progresses.
Only Brentford's Alan Judge has made as many tackles as Bianchi in the division so far, but the Leeds midfielder has done it in fewer games.
Bianchi also features highly in the Championship's passing statistics and he will be very encouraged by the start he has made in these two key areas.

The 25-year-old is likely to play a key role for Leeds, as they look to get back to winning ways under Neil Redfearn.
The former academy-boss has taken over from Darko Milanic, who was sacked after only six games in charge, and he will be hoping to guide the club up the table after a poor start to the campaign.
