Target in sight – Leeds United fans donate £ 15,000 to food banks to protest Premier League pay-per-view prizes

Dean Smith’s men had won all of their first four Premier League games before the clash and were favorites to make them five in a row, especially with Leeds missing both Liam Cooper and Kalvin Phillips

Despite good chances for both teams, they went scoreless at the break, but the Whites played their scoring fast-paced football in the second half and Bamford scored three goals, including two fine finishes, to put the Villains with the sword

The performance and the result were a testament to how well Bielsa’s football is rooted in his squad and how easily the players can come in to the side and play as if they have played every game

« The group is homogeneous and it is easy for everyone to assimilate their roles in the team »

A player playing a different role was Luke Ayling, who replaced Cooper in the middle half, and Bielsa praised the captain for the night

« He was quick, he was nimble, he defended well, he led well, he used the ball well, he transmitted serenity to the rest of the squad, » said Bielsa, who performed a vital replacement in the 21st minute that greatly contributed to the result

Pascal Struijk, playing the role of Phillips’ deep midfielder, took an early booking for a foul on Jack Grealish and could have seen red for a second challenge soon after

Bielsa’s concern led to the Dutchman’s withdrawal and the entry of Jamie Shackleton, who played superbly

« Pascal landed an early yellow and after that he had another foul which was dangerous, » he said

« There was a lot of mobility in the midfield, it was very dynamic and very easy for anyone to take on a challenge out of time and I was worried so I made the substitution »

In a dynamic midfielder, stiletto-heeled Shackleton is exactly the player you want.The youngster ran around the field, dribbling when he saw space and playing quick, smart passes when it was there. best option

« He got into the game very well, he was dynamic, he didn’t lose the ball, he got it back several times and he was present in the opponent’s third striker, » said Bielsa

But the headlines belonged to Bamford, who now has six goals in six Premier League appearances for Leeds, having struggled to find consistent football and training during his previous summit engagement

« Everything Bamford gets he deserves, not because I have sympathy for him From my point of view he is a player with a lot of qualities He produces a lot more danger than he is. ‘in the end and if he continues to improve his efficiency, he will receive greater applause

« We didn’t do anything different with him, he did the same things as in the past The only difference is that he now converts chances in the past that he did not convert »

The hat-trick will add volume to the noise surrounding the center-forward’s international future He qualifies for both the Republic of Ireland and England but Bielsa refuses to be drawn on the subject

One player with a guaranteed future in an English shirt is Jack Grealish, but Leeds made a good jib by canceling his threat, especially in the second half

He created chances nonetheless, seeing a first half shot cleared from the line by Ayling and a second half shot saved by Meslier, but he passed out from play as Leeds took full control

« Maybe in the second half it was more difficult for him, because when he received the ball he had less time to carry it than when he did it in the first half. -time, when he received it in more space Nevertheless, he is not an easy player to neutralize «
