Leeds United

Bielsa rues missed chances after Swans smash and grab raid

1st September 2019, 15:29 by Michael Holland

Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa bemoaned his side's failure to take their chances as they slipped to a 1-0 home defeat against Swansea.

Wayne Routledge came off the bench to score at the death and secure a dramatic victory at Elland Road but Leeds should have had the game put to bed well before then

United totally dominated the game yet, like on numerous times last season during their unsuccessful promotion drive, their finishing let them down.

Bielsa refused to be too critical, but accepts their failure to take their chances, ultimately cost them.

“The individual performance of the players was positive,” he said. “Our players played a little under the level that they have. We had the ball constantly. We defended well.

“We created enough chances to deserve two or three goals. The chances that the opponent team had was in relation to the corners, and more from the second balls after the corners.

“We had a high possession of the ball. We attacked with calm. This is the analysis of the game.”
