Leeds United's dramatic win over Swansea City on Sunday yielded yet another record for Marcelo Bielsa's side.

The 1-0 victory saw the Whites record their 20th clean sheet of the campaign; a club record for a 46 game season.

Goalkeeper Kiko Casilla has recorded 15 clean sheets in 35 appearances while Illan Meslier has five in his 8 games in goal.

United have recorded four more clean sheets that next best Fulham who have 16 from their 43 games this term.

Queens Park Rangers and Luton Town sit at the bottom end of this particular stat having kept just six across the season so far.

Bielsa also set became the quickest Leeds manager in the club's 100-year history to claim 50 competitive wins as he raced to the achievement in just 93 matches.

That milestone came against the Cottagers in late June at Elland Road with a 3-0 win in LS11.

Since United's last top flight game against Chelsea in May 2004, Leeds have played 733 league games.

They have won 313 of those, drawn 173 and lost on 247 occasions whilst scoring 999 goals and conceding 872.

Leeds have won 1088 points in that time and the next goal - which could potentially seal a return to the top flight - will be their 1000th strike outside of the Premier League since relegation.
