Charlie Cresswell spoke to the media after making his Premier League debut for Leeds United, at home to West Ham United.

Leeds went into a first half lead through Raphinha's strike, but a second half own-goal and Michal Antonio's winner gave the visitors all three points.

The defender impressed throughout the 90 minutes despite the late defeat and he shared his thoughts following the conclusion of the match at Elland Road.

“Both teams battled hard today, so it was tough to call,” Cresswell explained.

“We have just got to keep working hard every day. Sometimes results happen that shouldn’t happen.

“That’s football, you never know what can happen. We just have to stick together and work as hard as we can.

“Hopefully that win will come soon, very soon.

“I am gutted to have lost, I will have to watch it back to see how I did individually,

“I was told about five minutes before the warm up that I was starting. I went into the dressing room and had to switch my game head on, I felt I adapted quite well.

“He [Marcelo Bielsa] just wanted me to go out there and do my thing, that’s what got me to this position so just to carry on doing that.”
