Sheffield Wednesday manager Steve Bruce said on The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT last Friday morning (7:55am, February 8, 2019) that Norwich City are the team in the Championship who have impressed him the most.

Bruce also mentioned Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United when he was asked which team has been impressed him the most in the Championship so far this season.

The former Aston Villa manager said on The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT last Friday morning (7:55am, February 8, 2019) when asked which team in the Championship have impressed him the most: “Norwich have come from nowhere and they have put together a really decent side.

“It has been interesting to see all the stuff Leeds and Bielsa, and what he has been able to achieve.

“If you look at the top end now, there are a few teams now with a right go, but I think out of them all, Norwich have been the one.

“The way they play, and the way they have transformed themselves really because they were in a bit of transformation and all of a sudden they have put a very, very decent team together and they look very, very good.”

Promotion challenge

Leeds have been very impressive so far this season, and although the Whites’ recent form and results have not been great, they are very much in the race for automatic promotion to the Premier League.

Norwich did not look particularly great at the start of the campaign, but the Canaries have been brilliant over the past few months, and have been the surprise package of the campaign.

However, there are a lot of games to be played, and the likes of West Bromwich Albion and Middlesbrough will be aiming to end up in the top two.

Leeds are second in the Championship table at the moment with 58 points from 31 matches, just two points behind leaders Norwich.
