Marcelo Bielsa has spoken with the media after his Leeds side lost to Tottenham Hotspur at Elland Road.

The visitors raced into a three goal lead by the half-time which all but secured the result, before then adding a fourth late in the game.

The Leeds United head coach gave his views following the loss.

He said: “I think the result is fair, we could have reduced the differences, however.

“But, we were never able to govern or dominate the game. Even if we created goalscoring chances we never had a feeling of clear dominance over the opponent.

“What’s concrete is that in the two ways we faced the game, with a more conservative profile in the first half, and with a more daring profile in the second, neither of the two ways gave a result.

“Obviously it’s not just this game, but a succession of results. Against these type of results there is no way of not feeling badly.

“The amount of goals conceded, of course it has a decisive influence on the results we obtain.

“Today, when we played with seven players with a more defensive profile, a back four and three midfielders with a more defensive profile, we did not defend better."
