Bielsa Admits Newcastle Can Actually Achieve Draw Results

Leeds United beat Newcastle United 2-1 in Week 20 of the Premier League.

NEWCASTLE - Leeds United coachMarcelo Bielsa said Newcastle United could actually balance the position when the two teams met in Week 20 of the English Premier League, Wednesday (27/1) early morning Western Indonesian Time. However, Leeds ended up winning 2-1 at St James Park.

Two goals from Raphina and Jack Harrison were enough for Leeds to win three points from home to the opponents, as well as their first win in 2021. In response to this, Bielsa said he was happy because he was able to end the bad trend of defeats in the last three matches.

"I thought they could balance the position in the last 20 minutes," said Bielsa as reported by Leeds Live . "What do you think the real problem in the second half was for Newcastle when they kept scoring chances?"

On the one hand, Bielsa considers his team to create more chances and convert them into goals. That is what Newcastle cannot do even though in statistics it is superior in possession of the ball and shots on goal.

"In general, we got more chances. But it is true that in the last 20 minutes they grabbed a lot of chances through corners," said Bielsa.

After the match, the Argentine coach reportedly approached Newcastle coach Steve Bruce in the hallway. The two of them talk about matches and general matters.

"This is an important win for us. The majority of the team go like this and the faster we can go the better," he said.
