Leeds United fans are back in full voice after the majority of the Whites’ first season back in the Premier League was played in front of empty terraces.

The Elland Road faithful are playing their part, as Marcelo Bielsa’s men have earned ten of their sixteen points at home.

Though the Whites' home ground will lay empty this week after Leeds' Premier League clash against Aston Villa was postponed, it is hoped that supporters will march back to LS11 to get behind the team as they take on Burnley on January 2.

Whites defender Luke Ayling claims the fans are making a difference.

“I think our home form is actually quite good,” Ayling told the BBC.

“A lot of that is down to the fans and the way they’re making the away teams feel when they’re there.

“They’ve certainly stepped up to the plate - they’ve been away from Elland Road for 18 months and I think it shows with how loud it is in there every week.”

Here's how Leeds United's average home crowd ranks among the Premier League this season:
