Speaking ahead of the clash, Whites boss Marcelo Bielsa spoke glowingly of opposition manager Pep Guardiola, claiming: “He's a magical man. What he knows how to do is extremely difficult for me to try [to copy] and I’ve already given up, but I have genuine admiration for what he does.
“Interpreting the novel decisions that he incorporates into a game is already a way of falling in love with football.
“We [at Leeds] try to do what we do better and better. I don't have many other options than to try to ensure that what I understand should be done, is done better and better, because I have no imagination for very different things.”
