With Leeds United having the advantage over Norwich City in the battle for top spot in the Championship table, today’s clash between both sides at Elland Road was set to be a cracker.
Three points for Leeds would potentially give us a massive advantage over Daniel Farke’s side, but victory for them would see them draw level with us on points.
Five minutes in it looked to be one of those days again for manager Marcelo Bielsa as the visitors took an early lead, and unfortunately for us, they doubled that advantage ahead of the halftime break.
Adding a third late on in the second half secured them all three points on the day and Patrick Bamford’s stoppage-time consolation at least gave the fans something to cheer.
One of those days unfortunately as we had greater chances again but just couldn’t make it count.
Speaking to the BBC following the fulltime whistle, Bielsa said of the game.
“We still need too many chances to score and we need to be much more clinical than we were tonight. We did not make our possession count. We have now lost the previous defensive solidity and that is down to me, not the players. I feel deeply responsible. We made the changes at half-time to try and make better use of the wide areas. It did not work and you have to give credit to Norwich for the quality they showed.”
