Coach Marcelo Bielsa dropped to 14th place after losing 1-4 to Crystal Palace in Round 8 of the Premier League.
After a good start, Leeds is slowly running out of breath with rivals in the Premier League. Coach Marcelo Bielsa’s teacher and teacher have a second consecutive defeat. In the last 5 rounds, the Premier League rookie got a victory. Failure at Selhurst field caused “The Whites” to drop to 14th place with 10 points.
The football team from West Yorkshire pushed up the squad after the opening whistle, but the quality of the visitors’ attacks was not mutated enough to penetrate the Crystal Palace defense. The defender took the initiative and suddenly got a goal in the 12th minute, after Scott Dann’s header. The ball goes off the edge of the bar, then lies in the net
5 minutes later, Patrick Bamford equalized for Leeds, after a delicate touch when facing goalkeeper Guaita. However, this goal was not recognized when the VAR discovered that the upper body of the No. 9 striker was higher than the home team’s defense.
Shortly after being stripped of the goal, the football team from the West Yorkshire conceded for the second time. A young player born in 1998, Eberechi Eze shined with a beautiful free-kick from a distance of more than 20 meters, helping “Blue Eagle” lead 2-0.
Illan Meslier did what he could, but gave it up. Both ends of the home team sent the ball to the edge of the bar, before going into the net.
Leeds persisted and had a goal to shorten the score in the 27th minute
Bamford continued to concede Crystal Palace. His goal this time was recognized. The striker born in 1993 has 7 goals in the Premier League this season, the performance is only inferior to Son Heung-min and Calvert-Lewin (8 goals).
Bamford’s goal is also what Leeds United did in front of the host. 3 minutes before the break, Coach Roy Hodgson’s teachers and teachers had a goal to increase the score to 3-1. Van Aanholt’s horizontal stretch hit Helder Costa’s foot. The ball changed direction to the corner near the Leeds goal. Goalkeeper Meslier stepped up to catch the opponent’s cross, so he could not back up to save the visitors.
2 consecutive rounds passed, Leeds had to admit defeat with the score 1-4. Before that, coach Bielsa’s army lost a lot to Leicester at Elland Road’s home field.
