The Leeds-born pundit is impressed with his hometown team’s start to the campaign.

Sky Sports pundit Don Goodman says he was blown away by Leeds United’s performance against Nottingham Forest last month.

The Whites cruised to a 2-0 at the City Ground, despite their opponents having won five out of six matches beforehand, courtesy of goals from Kemar Roofe and Ezgjan Alioski.

And Leeds-born Goodman believes his hometown time have a ‘great chance’ of being promoted this season.

In his early-season report on the Championship, he writes: “Leeds gave the best performance that I’ve seen for a very long time in the Championship when they won at Nottingham Forest. It blew me away because they did it with such control against another team that had started the season well and were full of confidence themselves.

“But Leeds went there and really dominated them, they looked very energetic with and without the ball and they’ve set the standard for themselves now. If they can perform at that level then there’s no doubt they’ll have a great chance of promotion.”

But Goodman’s praise doesn’t end there. Discussing each club’s summer transfer business, Leeds once again feature at the top of his selections.

The White signed 12 players for their first team, but still turned a profit courtesy of Chris Wood and Charlie Taylor’s moves to Burnley.

He adds: “It’s tricky to assess until they’ve all played a few more games, but you look at the players Leeds have brought in and it looks like they may have done some very shrewd business.”

And on the subject of managers, Goodman continues: “I keep coming back to Leeds don’t I! But Thomas Christiansen has taken a side who suffered the disappointment of missing out on the play-offs last season and he’s had such a big impact so far.”

Leeds, who are yet to taste defeat in any competition this season, can break into automatic promotion spots with a win against Burton Albion on Saturday.

Oddly, success over the Brewers would bring the Whites’ first maximum points haul at Elland Road this campaign.
