The Moment A 1vs1 Turned Into A 7vs1 In The Matter Of Seconds
Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa has worked wonders at Elland Road since his arrival in the summer.
The 63-year-old has implemented a number of radical changes at the Championship club, with his almost obsessive attention to detail being one of them.
In a moment during today's win against Wigan Athletic that sums up his time in charge, seven Leeds players showed great desire to stop a potentially dangerous one-on-one situation in the 50th minute.
"It's hunger. It's desire. It's Marco Bielsa." said the Sky Sports commentator as Leeds managed to retrieve possession after a dangerous one-on-one situation was killed off.
Goals from Pablo Hernandez and Kemar Roofe gave the club a vital three points on Sunday afternoon, as Leeds sit at the top of the Championship ladder with 30 points.
This moment, however, grabbed the headlines. Individuals can often steal the limelight but this team effort is far more satisfying, especially if you're a manager.

That phase of play summed up Leeds under Bielsa perfectly, great tracking back and just smothered the Wigan player, he had nowhere to go, no other Wigan player in shot.

Could it be that the fallen giants are to make a return to the Premier League after such a lengthy absence?
