Leeds United goalkeeper Thomas Christiansen has come under fire after his recent displays.

Leeds manager Thomas Christiansen looks on during the Sky Bet Championship match between Cardiff City and Leeds United at Cardiff City Stadium on September 26, 2017 in Cardiff, Wales.

Thomas Christiansen has told the Yorkshire Evening Post that Leeds United goalkeeper Felix Wiedwald still has his full confidence.

Wiedwald has faced criticism from Leeds fans, after some shaky displays since arriving at Elland Road this summer.

The German stopper has made a number of errors, and he looked particularly vulnerable during Leeds last match - which finished as a 3-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday.

Leeds fans have now started to call for Andy Lonergan to be promoted to Christiansen’s first choice stopper.

However, the Danish boss seems to suggest that Wiedwald still has his full faith.

"Everyone has to settle in. I'm still settling in! Felix is not the only one. We must remember his six clean sheets,” Christiansen said.

Leeds do still have an impressive defensive record this season, despite their heavy defeat to Wednesday before the international break.

The Whites have conceded just 11 goals in their first 11 league games, which has given them a platform to build upon.

Leeds are still in the Championship play offs as things stand, and remain among the favourites for promotion.

Leeds’ next match comes against Reading on Saturday afternoon.
