Leeds United's Pontus Jansson rues a missed chance during the Sky Bet Championship match between Leeds United and Derby County at Elland Road on January 11, 2019 in Leeds, England.

Leeds United defender Pontus Jansson was in no mood to accept any criticism of himself of his team after the club's Friday night win.

Leeds beat Derby 2-0 in a game overshadowed by a spying furore leading up to it.

 

One comment which caught the ire of Pontus Jansson was an opinion given by Sky Sports pundit Keith Andrews prior to the game.

Andrews had suggested Leeds may be a better team without the Swede.

Jansson proved him wrong with a dominant display against a hapless Derby as Leeds kept a clean sheet and won 2-0.

The Leeds centre-back was alerted to the comments after the game and hit out on Twitter after the game, calling out the former MK Dons midfielder.

Jansson's message shows he was high on emotion after the club's win and felt like he could take on anyone.

The fan favourite has an indomitable spirit which really helps his team on the pitch.

When the pressure is on late in the season, this will be crucial, and in standing up for himself, Jansson demonstrated he is not to be messed with.
