Marcelo Bielsa is nothing if not loyal.
Despite some rather ugly results, Bielsa backed the team’s defence during his post-match press conference after the loss to Ipswich.
Bielsa defended his defence - said despite errors today, defensive stability is the reason why Leeds are so high up the table. Says finishing is why they didn't finish second. #lufc— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) May 5, 2019
He’s right that the finishing has been rather poor, but the defence has looked rather, um, bad the past few weeks, especially given the chances against. Ipswich scored with all three shots on goal, which is a very, very worrying stat going into the playoffs.
Derby County didn’t look very good when they played Leeds earlier in the season, and perhaps this team can bounce back and get a few results, but this defence had better figure out what is going wrong quickly.
