NO GOALS: Leeds and Manchester United play out stalemate


After a 6-2 thriller earlier in the season, the reverse fixture between Leeds and Manchester United ended in a stalemate.

Leeds have come through a spell of three tough games against United, Manchester City and Liverpool unbeaten.

Marcelo Bielsa's side have climbed into the top half of the table after this run which included this draw.

However they felt aggrieved they weren't awarded a penalty in the first half.

The ball looked to hit Luke Shaw's arm inside the area but VAR did not overturn the on field decision.

Ilan Meslier was forced into a save from Marcus Rashford's free-kick shortly after.

Helder Costa broke through on goal later and almost seen the home side take the lead.

His deflected strike looped towards goal but landed on the roof of the net rather than in it.


Bielsa: Leeds evolving after stalemate with Manchester United


The Leeds boss praised his side's organisation in the game and says they are growing as a team.

"In the game, we defended well," Bielsa said post-game. "We couldn't attack how we wanted to. Even if we didn't dominate, we avoided the game becoming unbalanced.

"There are signs of evolution. The group of players have constructed a solid group. Throughout this time they made errors and have learned how to correct them.

"In the same way, they learned to avoid errors that are avoidable. I have the feeling there has been a growth in their maturity in how to manage these games.

"Clearly at this moment we cannot go into the games to dominate them and think we can win while dominant.

"But the capacity for the players to go up against these very good players has also increased.

"We can impose ourselves on defences and can avoid being overcome by attackers of the highest level."
