Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa has admitted that he is worried about his side’s relegation following their heavy defeat to Liverpool on Wednesday night.
Leeds went 6-0 down in the game and are now just three points above Burnley who beat Spurs on the same day with some tricky fixtures coming up.
“The distances between the two teams we were never able to reduce them. In the second half, we thought it would be difficult to play an even game but we wanted to prevent or avoid what ended up happening.
“A result like today you can’t explain it with the absences. We are fighting relegation. Of course, it worries me, how is it not going to?” he said after the game.
Bielsa further urged his troops to adapt to the game to their opponents as he felt that they were not doing enough in carrying the balls to the dangerous areas.
“My reaction is a disappointment given the result we have obtained. It has been difficult for us to adapt to the opponents and it has been difficult for us to get the ball to our forwards with clarity. We need to defend better and attack better – both things. We will fight to defend our position,” he added.
Next for Leeds is a tie against Tottenham who will be seeking revenge after their Wednesday tie against Burnley.
