The Whites fell out of the top half of the table after losing for the first time since March 8th courtesy of goals from Pascal Gross and Danny Welbeck.

It was unusually below par showing from Marcelo Bielsa's men, and the Argentine made no excuses for his side.

Speaking after the game, he said: "We didn't play well.

"The victory for the opponent was fair. We created very little danger and it was difficult for us to recover the ball. The game was hard with the height of their centre-backs. We couldn't avoid them initiating the play, nor could we overcome them trying to get in behind.

"In the middle sector of the pitch we were trying to find variety to get in behind them.

"Yes, there was very few [chances], that's true. It wasn't because [Patrick Bamford] was isolated. It was because the ball couldn't reach the final third. I pay more attention to the construction of our offensive game."

Leeds’ next game sees them come up against Tottenham Hotspur, who beat Sheffield United 4-0 on Sunday night.

A superb Gareth Bale hat-trick and a strike from Son Heung-Min were enough to wrap up the three points, and to move Spur up to fifth in the table.
