As things stand, Leeds could finish the season with a place in the new European Conference League with a seventh place finish, but will need to close a six-point gap on Spurs to do so.

Speaking after the game against the Red Devils, Whites boss Marcelo Bielsa gave his verdict on the performance, and contended: “It was a very demanding game for us. For the game not to become unbalanced the team made a massive effort.

“This effort allowed the game not to become unbalanced. I insist I value a lot everything we did so the game didn't become unbalanced.

“What was moving was the effort the team made. A game like today, if we didn't bring this big energy we wouldn't be able to balance it."
