Leeds United transfer news: Whites 'seriously' interested in 20/21 champion, Player reacts to 'nice' Elland Road links

Leeds United saw their six-game unbeaten run in the Premier League come to an end against Brighton on Saturday afternoon.

Monday, 3rd May 2021, 8:08 am

The Whites were beaten 2-0 in the south coast, with goals from Pascal Gross and Danny Welbeck enough to ensure that the hosts picked up a valuable win.

The result leaves Marcelo Bielsa’s men 11th in the table with just four games left to play, and could represent a significant dent in their hopes of a top-half finish.

Speaking after the game, the Argentine coach was quick to deliver a blunt assessment of where his side came up short against the Seagulls.

He said: "We didn't play well.

"The victory for the opponent was fair. We created very little danger and it was difficult for us to recover the ball. The game was hard with the height of their centre-backs. We couldn't avoid them initiating the play, nor could we overcome them trying to get in behind.

"In the middle sector of the pitch we were trying to find variety to get in behind them.

"Yes, there was very few [chances], that's true. It wasn't because [Patrick Bamford] was isolated. It was because the ball couldn't reach the final third. I pay more attention to the construction of our offensive game."

Next up for Leeds is a clash against Tottenham Hotspur in Saturday's early kick-off.

Spurs beat Sheffield United 4-0 on Sunday evening.
