Man Utd boss Ralf Rangnick: “We knew that it was an important win today. It was similar to the one against West Ham. That was similarly emotional at the end with the last-second goal. But today it was more important, not only that we won the game but the way that we reacted after conceding the equalizer. That was the best possible answer the team could give.”
Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa: “It is impossible not to be worried. We have conceded 50 goals. Do you think I cannot be worried? How can I not feel responsible? In the first half, we started well and ended well but didn’t manage to score. In the moments we lost dominance they scored.”
