Marcelo Bielsa: A very good performance

Head coach on Stoke City win.

Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa spoke to the media following Saturday’s victory at Stoke City.

The Whites kept up the fine start to the season with a comprehensive 3-0 win at the Bet365 Stadium, thanks to strikes from Stuart Dallas, Ezgjan Alioski and Patrick Bamford.

Bielsa was very pleased with his sides display, which extended the club’s unbeaten run to six games in all competitions.

“The start of the game was a little bit complicated for us, but after we managed to find the goal, we defended well and attacked well too,” said Bielsa.

“We had a very good performance and it was a deserved win.

“We are playing with the same ideas as last year, but losing the ball less, we spent more time having the ball without losing it very easily and are suffering less counter attacks.

“This is the same idea of the team, but maybe more spontaneous behaviours in the team or more natural behaviours in the team.

“It’s very difficult to predict what can happen, but we have to show we are strong with the passage of games.

“It’s going to be key that we don’t have a lot of injuries and of course, the positive results will have influence on the mood that the team has.”
