After seeing his side score a dramatic late winner away against Liverpool on Saturday night, Jesse Marsch gave his thoughts to the media.

The Leeds United head coach oversaw a stunning and memorable victory, which saw Rodrigo score in the first half, before Crysencio Summerville struck a 90th minute winner.

The celebrations on the bench matched those in the stands, as the Whites claimed their first three points away from home this season.

“It was a good performance,” Marsch stated, after the full-time whistle.

“It was good that we were able to reward ourselves. My feeling is that we shouldn’t be in the situation we are in, but we are.

“I’ve tried to stay calm but also to push. The group is strong and they’re committed, so I am thankful to have them.

“They stepped up big today and they are the reason we were able to get the win.”

Marsch was asked about how his side overcame recent results and were able to secure the victory at Anfield, a place well renowned for how hard it is to go to and get a result.

He said: “You can go through the last eight games and we were not second best, many times.

“A lot of times we were right in the match and couldn’t find ways to make plays.

“We talked about staying strong in the match and finding ways not to hurt ourselves when it was tight, then finding ways to make plays.

“We did that, and obviously it’s a tough place to play, so to get the three points is big for us.

“We stuck to our principles. With our pressing, counter pressing, our sprinting and work against the ball.”
