Managers Reaction

Burnley manager Sean Dyche: “I’m not overly disappointed, our overall performance was decent. Leeds are a tricky side to play against.” he added. “Our energy was good, our shape was really good, we took the pace and fire out of their game in spells, which is important. It’s just the goal, that’s where we are at the moment – Taylor gets tripped, Mee gets a deflection on it, and it’s a goal.”

Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa: “Apart from two segments in the middle of each half, we were able to manage the game.” he added. “They had three resources that were important – the capacity to force errors and take advantage of them through their two center-forwards, the management of the set-pieces, and they have a very distinct style of play.
