#PremierLeagueStories – #ChrisWilder disagrees with #MarceloBielsa that Leeds deserved to win the match against the Blades #SHUFC

Marcelo Bielsa is wrong to think Leeds United deserved to beat Sheffield United on Sunday, according to Chris Wilder. The Blades boss took exception to the Whites head coach’s opinion it was a just result for the visitors after Patrick Bamford’s late winner. Wilder said Leeds had barely created any chances of note compared with the litany of openings his side had fashioned at Bramall Lane.

Chris Wilder said “They’re a very attack-minded side and got a lot of threats in the team, but they’ve not really created anything, The shape of the team, the enthusiasm, the competitive nature of the team, the way the team went searching for a winner second half. You watch the game, I don’t agree with Marcelo’s opinion they deserved to win. It was always going to be a tight game, but when you have the better chances, which we did, [Oli] McBurnie header, [Jack] Robinson second and the two chances first half we have to score. It was a really tight game. They’re an exceptional footballing side, well-coached, got a lot of good players, Always going to be a tight game, local derby, Yorkshire derby. They were better for the first 10 or 15 minutes. Once we got a grip of the game, obviously two boys playing in the back three that normally wouldn’t have been, we’ve created the better chances. We’ve got to score the first goal. Their opportunities came from long range, obviously good movement, good build-up, but the shape of the team was really good. We had the best chances in the first half, we had the best chances in the second half and if you don’t take your chances in a tight game then [you’re going to get punished]. [Jack] Harrison finds a fabulous cross and Bamford finds space off Jack Robinson and we’re left ruing the chance to score the first goal. Maybe I’m seeing it through rose-tinted glasses, I didn’t think he (Ramsdale) had that much to do, couple of bits and pieces, but he didn’t get the man-of-the-match award like the Leeds United goalkeeper did. Maybe I was just looking at the other end and disappointed we’ve not stuck one past their goalkeeper, who was outstanding on the day.”
