Marsch says Marc Roca and Tyler Adams were amazing in Leeds draw

Jesse Marsch has told BT Sport (broadcast on 30/8; 22:11) that he thought that Marc Roca and Tyler Adams were amazing on Tuesday as Leeds drew with Everton at Elland Road.

The Whites endured a frustrating evening against Frank Lampard’s side. They went behind during the first-half. And they were forced to fight their way back into the game.

Leeds struggled to break the Toffees down at times. The visitors were more than happy to defend deep and waste as much time as possible.

But Leeds were able to find an equaliser with Luis Sinisterra scoring from some way out.

Everton definitely had their chances after the equaliser. In fact, Leeds were much less impressive after levelling the game. But they did threaten to find a winner.

There were two colossal displays from Adams and Roca in the middle of the park. And when Marsch was asked about Sinisterra, he went on to praise both of the fellow summer signings.

“Really happy for him. We really like him. I also think Marc and Tyler were amazing in the midfield. Jack Harrison was dangerous all night. Joffy came in off the bench in a difficult situation,” he told BT Sport.

Roca and Adams amazing

Adams and Roca are still finding their feet as a partnership. But they do appear to complement each other so well.

Adams is someone who always appears to be in the right position when Leeds need him to be, while Roca is a class act in possession.

Roca, in particular, was really threatening to step up for Leeds tonight. Some of his passing was sublime. But he is also clearly not afraid to get stuck in either.

It was an underwhelming result for Leeds. But there are some positive signs to take forward.
