With Bamford’s 87-minute lore, Leeds United defeated Sheffield United 1-0 and won the first Premier League Yorkshire Derby victory in 19 years.
The following is the full text of Bielsa's post-match press conference:
The 0-0 in the first half was very fair for both teams. We could have led, or we could fall behind in the first half. In the second half, we performed better, took more advantages and got more opportunities. I think the result of the game is fair.
A team's conceded goals can explain the team's defensive performance. I think in the first two games, our defense was not so bad as to lose 7 goals. Of course, in this game,
They are part of the team's tactical system and can be useful both in scoring and defense. Take Bamford as an example. He now makes our offense very good, or more specific. Melier made several important saves today.
He showed us his abilities. He helped the team suppress their opponents in their own half through offense. We played better in the 45 minutes he was on the court and made it easier for the team to perform well. This is a great and important improvement for him. He is a player capable of breaking the deadlock, but he hasn't shown it yet. Today he provided support for our offense, and over time, he will help us score goals.
We think it is too early for him to participate in the official competition. When a player can play, it means that he will occupy the position of the 18-man roster. If he starts in a game, then maybe he can play 90 minutes. If he comes off the bench, he can play for a period of time, depending on the situation. At this stage we don't want to take too much risk to let him play for a long time.
My evaluation is as you said. The answer to this question is Dallas' performance, no need to say more.
We did the same thing as in the first half, but we added extra runs.
In the last nine rounds of the British Championship last season, Roberts had some important performances. I think as the season progresses, he will be able to show the unquestionable qualities he has.
I think that when it comes to adaptability in the Premier League, there must be more games, because we only played three games.
I am not an expert in evaluating goalkeepers. Fundamentally speaking, his joining Leeds is the credit of Marcos Abad and sports director Horta.
I don't care about it.
