Pontus Jansson has already taken home a PFA Fans Player of the Month award this season and it seems like Leeds United striker Chris Wood could be set to follow in his footsteps. The Kiwi captain has been in wonderful form this season and deserves an award after a wonderful month.

Chris Wood faced competition from fellow strikers Tammy Abraham (Bristol City), Yann Kermogant (Reading), goalkeeper David Stockdale (Brighton) and defenders Timm Klose (Norwich) and Sean Morrison (Cardiff City). The voting earlier was pretty one sided with Chris Wood closing in on 50% of the votes, David Stockdale his closest rival with around 20%. Chris Wood has carried the goalscoring responsibility this season and has delivered remarkably. After netting 12 in the entirety of last season he has netted 21 this season, and it’s only February.

Even the most critical of Leeds United fans are now coming round to the fact that Chris Wood is performing better than most players in his position at this level. Scott Hogan went for £10 million to Aston Villa, given Chris Wood is around the same age and probably offers more than Hogan is most departments you have to wonder how much money he is now worth. He has been the go-to guy when we need goals this season and our hopes of finishing in a play-off place are resting on many shoulders but none more-so than the goalscoring machine Chris Wood.

About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
