Bielsa insists Leeds ‘dominated’ dramatic draw with Middlesbrough

Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa insists his side to deserved win against stubborn Middlesbrough following draw. 

Boro took the lead just two minutes into the second-half thanks to a Lewis Wing goal and seemed destined to take all three points at the Riverside Stadium.

That was until Kalvin Phillips scored a dramatic equaliser eleven minutes into added time, snatching a point for the Yorkshire outfit at the last possible moment.

Despite coming so close to ending up with nothing, the club’s Argentine manager believes Leeds would have been deserving winners.

“The beginning of the first-half, the end of the first-half and the second-half was good,” Bielsa told

“We had a moment in the first-half, where we suffered with mid-distance finishing and some set-pieces and the opponent was dangerous.

“We could have won the game, you can take into account 15 minutes where we were not at ease, but apart from this segment I think we dominated the game, created chances, deserved to score the goal and probably deserved to score other goals as well.

“We were always playing in the opponents box, but we couldn’t finish our attacks.

“We didn’t lose the ball before arriving to the box, so this made me think we could score a goal.”
