“In possession, we had been superior, which doesn’t signify something, however inside a context it begins taking some worth.
“There was no clear dominance within the sport. We had been dominated and dominated in an identical method. The gamers who unbalanced from the opponent had been 17 Fred and 39 McTominay. It wasn’t [Marcus] Rashford or Bruno Fernandes, nor [Daniel] James who participated primarily to defend.
“With this determination, Man Utd had been superior to me in the best way I imagined the sport as a result of it helped steadiness the defensive system of Manchester United and I didn’t suppose the important thing could be with the 2 central midfielders.
“In case you have a look at the sport intimately the unbalance comes from these two gamers. Offensive manufacturing from each groups was fairly related.
“We created 11 probabilities at purpose, scoring two. Man Utd created eight probabilities at purpose and scored six. They wanted 14 probabilities to attain six objectives, we would have liked 13 to attain two.
“The errors Man Utd made in defence had been the identical to those Leeds made. To be honest and to be truthful, the feeling of hazard from Man Utd was greater than from Leeds. However what’s true is we created hazard in a proportional approach to Man Utd.
“They managed to complete higher than we had been capable of. As one other side ought to be highlighted, the duels and disputes. Within the duels, disputes and one-v-ones we weren’t superior to them. We are able to learn this in two methods. Within the bodily side the place we had been higher than them, it’s a must to consider the focus, explosivity and aggression. Additionally the technical side which they had been superior to us in sure conditions.
“You requested how we assault how we attacked, however defend higher. What you’re proposing is abandon ingenuity and permit them to be superior to us. This isn’t one thing new as a result of this has at all times been the concept the media portrays to the general public.
“That the evolution solely works if it provides rapid outcomes. Forces us to enhance, it by no means tolerates or accompanies. Leeds had been constant for 2 years within the Championship. There have been few alternatives for the press to demand change as every part was going effectively.”
