Managers Reaction

Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa: “It was a victory that was very necessary. In the campaign so far we have picked up few points and in every game there is points at play that can help us improve our campaign.” he added. “The team fought the whole game, that is true, it’s necessary. Either way our team usually gives everything in every game. But, in that aspect the team was very similar to their game against Leicester. Always a victory brings happiness and in a human group happiness is indispensable.”

Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira: “You know, if it was on the other side I would expect the referee to give the penalty. I had the chance to look at it again and, yeah, I believe it was a penalty.” he added. “We created a number of situations and a number of chances and we should at least score one of them. This is the frustration about losing the game tonight.”
