Leeds United's Fourth Goal Against Newcastle United Was Straight Out Of Marcelo Bielsa's Playbook

Leeds United's Fourth Goal Against Newcastle United Was Straight Out Of Marcelo Bielsa's Playbook

Leeds United's fourth goal against Newcastle United summed up what Marcelo Bielsa is all about.

The Yorkshire outfit played out a seven-goal thriller at Elland Road and it was in the 84th minute when the win was truly sealed thanks to a sensational counter attack.

Leading 3-2 in a game they were losing after Jeff Hendrick had opened the scoring in the first half, Leeds broke in devastating fashion as they turned defence in attack.

Once Kalvin Phillips cleared the danger and summer signing Raphinha picked up the ball in his own half, white shirts raced forward and in next to no time Leeds had a 6 vs 3 situation on the break.

Raphinha picked out substitute Pablo Hernandez, who laid it on a plate for Ezgjan Alioski to smash home his first ever Premier League goal and make it 4-2.

Only Bielsa could get over half of his team sprinting up the pitch so late in the game whilst they were clinging on for dear life.

Minutes later after Alioski had found the net, another blistering break ended with Jack Harrison adding gloss on the win courtesy of an outrageous left-footed rifle into the top corner.

Leeds in the Premier League under Bielsa has already proved to be as exciting to watch as fans would have hoped and long may it continue.
