  • United’s first Premier League home game for over 16 years.
  • 3pm kick-off at Elland Road.
  • Captain Liam Cooper returns from a calf injury.
  • Whites beaten 4-3 at Liverpool on opening weekend.
  • Fulham defeated 3-0 at home to Arsenal.

What was it with Pablo?

It was a knock to his groin and he decided he wanted to be cautious with it. 

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
