Guardiola put Bielsa in place tactically. Leeds’ defense has been fully revealed. Up against better players individually and collectively of course, said Brady Hangeland, but here there is so much room and so much chaos in the Leeds defense that it comes close to being embarrassed, said Brady Hangeland as they put City fifth for the evening.
By then, the Premier League leaders still had two goals to score.
For the first time, Bielsa as club coach had to see the team he tops receive seven goals, according to the statistics service. Opta. The massacre took place in the 568th match of the coaching legend as coach of the club’s team.
In addition, this is only the fourth time in history that Leeds have lost by seven goals.
You should take responsibility for me
Bielsa says he cannot justify the result. BT Sport asked him if there wasn’t a bit more daring to play from behind against such a team.
– That’s what we tried throughout the game. If we had done the opposite, we would have been criticized for not trying to take the ball from the opponent. What we tried created a problem in front of our goal. We did nothing well, Bielsa says via an interpreter.
It is inevitable that I will take responsibility for a loss of this kind. We’ve never had an offer like this before, he continues.
Last season, City scored just one point against Leeds. Guardiola, a huge fan of Bielsa, believes that the Yorkshire club is nothing more than a throw ball.
“That’s why I think it’s a good win, because I’m sure all the opponents know what it means to face Leeds,” the City boss told BT Sport.
– He’s so stubborn
Manchester City played with the Argentine national team according to all the rules of art in the Federation. Only twelve minutes were played when the Blues advanced 2-0. Then Bernardo Silva seized a great opportunity.
After half an hour of play, Kevin De Bruyne made it 3-0. A little earlier, Leeds called for a penalty, but was not awarded a penalty by referee Paul Tierney.
In any case, there was little to be said that the guests from Yorkshire were three goals behind in the break.
– He’s very, very stubborn, that’s Bielsa. He wants to do it his way anyway. The way they are going to implement, I would call it a bit naive. You know Manchester City are one of the best press teams in the world, TV 2 football expert Eric Husklip noted during the break.
It’s a big, big problem for Leeds in this match. Follow the former national team player, because they will play life and death, but they will create problems for themselves along the way.
Fellow expert Peter Mehry was surprised they didn’t use the back room anymore, starting with the lightning-fast Daniel James at the top.
– Myhre said but they started in a nutshell, I think it’s totally fine.
The football party from City continued after the two teams changed. Riyad Mahrez scored after just four minutes. After about a quarter of an hour, De Bruyne waited with a shop in the distance.
Then defenders John Stones and Nathan Aceh scored two quick goals.
A win means that Manchester City will have at least one point to go to the next team in the table after Round 17 of the series ends.
On the other hand, Leeds could fall back to the 17th place.
