1. Marco Silvestri is a top class goalkeeper and Leeds are looking threatening

Silvestri had 10 saves in this game; 7 of these saves came before half time. He has a 79% save rate from on target shots this season but an even more impressive 84% save rate from on-target shots in 2015. This meanness from Silvestri and the better defensive cohesion from the Leeds back four, when coupled with the success of the new 4-2-3-1 Double Six formation has turned the Elland Road side from early season strugglers into late season successes. Since adopting the new formation at the turn of the year, Leeds have played 8 games: winning 5 of these games, drawing two and only losing 1, scoring 9 and conceding 4 goals to give them an average 2.12 points p/game. They are now the #4-ranked form team in the Championship.
