What was it with Pablo?
It was a knock to his groin and he decided he wanted to be cautious with it.
Pablo and Rodrigo
Pablo had a small knock in the warm up, we don’t think it’s very serious. With regards to Rodrigo it was a tactical change.
We have only played two games, nothing that happens can be called a tendency at the moment, we will have to wait a few more games
Why has efficiency improved?
There is no particular motive of why at the moment. Normally we are a team that needs to create a lot of chances to score goals but at the moment that is not happening, I don’t think it’s something definitive
Bielsa’s press conference
“It was a game where we couldn’t really show ourselves, in the first half we defended better but we didn’t really create much danger, in the second half we attacked a bit better but didn’t finish the attacks very well.”
Bielsa on BT Sport - asked is it like this every week with Leeds?
It was a difficult game, it was difficult for us to defend, it was difficult for us to attack, it was difficult for us to impose our style on our opponents.
What a game, phew. Reaction to come here
Is that it?
