“And we attacked below our usual capabilities. We didn’t attack well and we didn’t defend well. We didn’t play well.” Said Bielsa.
Being defeated byBrighton
with Maupay's only goal,Leeds United
experienced its third defeat in a row.
, Leed's United Manager, said:
“I link that to the last two games, not the game against Tottenham, but this causes me worry,”
Leeds failed to possess the ball in Brighton's half. Although, Bielsa does not want to relate this defeat to the pitch:
“I don’t want to link the performance or the defeat to the state of the pitch. I think we could have got a better result anyhow.
“We defended below our capabilities, below our usual level. We only managed to recover the ball close to our own goal.
“When we lost the ball the adaptations took us to the edge of our own area to recover the ball.
“And we attacked below our usual capabilities. We didn’t attack well and we didn’t defend well. We didn’t play well.”
, Brighton manager, expressed his delight about this win and said:
“We played 120 minutes at Newport on a difficult pitch, long trip, to recover from that and then play Manchester City on Wednesday.
“Then to come here against a Leeds team which is quite fresh, has got the physicality they have and attacking intent and to keep a clean sheet and restrict them to not many chances and score a good goal, I couldn’t be happier for the players.
“They’ve been fantastic. Great character, great personality and their quality as well.”
