Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa claimed his team did not deserve to win after drawing 1-1 with Manchester City in another Premier League thriller.
Raheem Sterling put City ahead early in the first half and Leeds’ record-breaking £ 27m signing Rodrigo set the tie at home in the second period.
Bielsa’s team was in danger of being overrun in the first half hour before standing up and taking the game to City after the break.
“It would not have been fair if we had won this game,” Bielsa said. “It was possible to have won this game, but it would not have been fair.
“We had to find an immense physical effort to be able to be on equal terms, or a little better than City for half a game.
“And we had to survive the beginning of the first half and the end of the second half.”
Kevin De Bruyne’s 30-yard free kick hit a post in the early exchanges as Pep Guardiola’s team camped out on the Leeds field, while Rodrigo also saw two attempts on the wood, the second superbly off the crossbar by Ederson. .
