Jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink has told Stadium Astro that Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa’s tactical approach is somewhat “naive”, despite the Whites keeping a clean sheet against Arsenal – and probably deserving to win.
Leeds dominated proceedings at Elland Road on Sunday afternoon, though the Whites failed to make a breakthrough – even though Arsenal played much of the second half with 10 men, following Nicolas Pepe’s red card for a headbutt on Gjanni Alioski.
Patrick Bamford, Rodrigo and Raphinha all hit the woodwork in the second half, while Bukayo Saka missed a one-on-one chance when put through on goal by Hector Bellerin. However, Leeds got a clean sheet – their third of the season.
Despite three clean sheets in nine league games, they have conceded 17 times in the other six outings – shipping four against Liverpool, Leicester City and Crystal Palace. Hasselbaink believes Leeds’ approach is “naive”, under Bielsa.
