Bielsa's team cruised to a 2-0 victory over Bristol City on Saturday afternoon with Robins boss Lee Johnson claiming United to have been "lucky" to claim all three points.

Although the Argentine brushed off his comments he does however believe there is room for improvement from his side and wants to see better attacking play this evening saying that "when we attack well we defend well."

"To attack we need a lot of dynamism," Bielsa said.

"To attack we need to make the opponent make mistakes. When we attack well we defend well.

"It’s not very frequent that we attack well and then we defend bad. So I couldn’t say it’s a sector of the field of the pitch, or a moment during the game.

"But it’s more about the play, broadly speaking. The idea is to defend well, to attack better and then to attack well and defend away from our box.

"So the secret in this is how we lose the ball. When we lose the ball in a well-intentioned process, usually the game is variable to us. But when we lose the ball because of a lack of ideas we don’t play well."
