'Best CB in the league' - Leeds fans react to Pontus Jansson's performance

Pontus Jansson rescued a late point for Leeds United yesterday.

Leeds had a tough game against Brentford and were losing 1-0 until Jansson delivered a late goal.

Neal Maupay had scored for the Bees, converting a penalty after Ollie Watkins was adjudged to have been fouled in the box.

Brentford looked set for a 1-0 victory at Leeds. But Jansson came up with the goods at the death.

Ezgjan Alioski, who had a much improved performance, delivered an inch-perfect free-kick and Jansson did the rest.

The Sweden international rose the highest, hung in the air and thumped his header into the net.

It was a dramatic late goal which kept Leeds towards the top of the Championship table.

Jansson is enjoying a very impressive season and his defensive work was immense as usual.

Here are what Leeds fans were saying about Jansson after the Brentford display.
