By Alex Stevens

Leeds fans took to Twitter to hail Pontus Jansson after he inspired a stunning 3-2 win against Norwich on Saturday.

With his team a goal down, the defender, who is on a season-long loan from Torino, scored the equaliser after 57 minutes with a near-post header direct from Pablo Hernandez’s corner.

It was Jansson’s first goal in his 12th match for Leeds and increased his already high standing among supporters of the Championship side.

Further goals from Chris Wood and Hadi Sacko secured a famous win for Leeds to maintain the feel-good factor at Elland Road.

Leeds are now in the top six of the Championship for the first time in more than two seasons.
