Leeds defender explains how his side were better under Garry Monk

Leeds United star Pontus Jansson has claimed that his side are struggling this season against bigger teams, something which was not the case last season when they were managed by Gary Monk.

The Whites currently sit in third position on the Championship standings after taking 20 points from their opening 10 games. They were however in first position prior to their 3-1 defeat at the hands of Cardiff City this week.

As the Yorkshire giants are aiming to win promotion to the Premier League this season, they will be going all out to try and secure a win during their game against Sheffield Wednesday this weekend.

Speaking ahead of the game, Jansson said, “We have two bad losses against Millwall and Cardiff and of course that’s something we have to work on.

“Last year we did well against the physical teams and struggled with teams that played football. This year it’s completely different. We have new players that have to adapt to the Championship.

“We will expect a physical game on Sunday too so we will see how they cope with it. Some of the players have to take a bigger responsibility- like me. I’m one of the biggest players and I have to step up.”
