Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa has revealed what he enjoyed about his team’s performance against Chelsea.

According to Bielsa, he was happy his team was able to create five or six goalscoring chances against Chelsea, something Everton struggled to achieve at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

Bielsa said: “What makes a team like Chelsea so fearful is for the four positions in attack, the two wide men, striker and one behind – they are able to count on two players for each position.

“The most difficult thing in football is positions in attack. Not easy to face these teams.

“We made a big, big effort so the game would not become unbalanced. It was a slight domination from us in the second half. More clear dominance from them in the first.

“Offensive production of each team was similar. Difficult to achieve.

“If you take for example the last game they played, first proper chance they conceded in that game was the 90th minute. For us, to have provoked five or six is very good.”
