Marcelo Bielsa felt Leeds ‘did not deserve to lose’ when they were beaten 1-0 at home by Aston Villa.

Leeds’ see-saw first season back in the top flight continued as they were denied back-to-back home wins after Tuesday’s 3-0 defeat of Southampton.

Bielsa’s side did not hit the same heights, but the Argentinian did not think his team deserved to lose a 13th league game this season.

“We played better than the opponent,” Bielsa said. “We had many minutes of dominance. Very few where we were dominated.

“In the first half we created more chances than they did, even if they scored a goal.”

Bielsa acknowledged his side did lack the killer pass or creative spark in the final third.

“All the crosses, passes from out wide, into the centre, were imprecise,” he added.

“In the set-pieces, of which we had plenty, we were also not managing our best. But to summarise, it was a game we did not deserve to lose.”
