Leeds took a point against us with a late Patrick Bamford goal and while believing that the two teams offered a similar threat, Marcelo Bielsa believed his team dominated the game.

“It was a very disputed game and it was a very physical game,” he said after seeing former Burnley loanee Patrick Bamford score a late equaliser.

He added: “Apart from a moment in the middle of the first half and middle of the second half, we dominated the game. They created danger in a similar proportion to us.

“It would have been very negative for us not to have taken any points from the game. Through that goal, we managed a draw which is a lot less than we were looking for but it was difficult to get it.

“For us to play well, our creative players must play well and to create danger we need our offensive players to shine. Our opponents in the case of today, they created danger without the need for their offensive players to shine.”

Sean Dyche said: “Today was a pretty strong performance. I think they’re an awkward side to play against and I think we dealt with them pretty well overall. I thought tactically we did well. We got our noses in front which I thought at the time was about right and then they nick a goal out of nothing really.

“We scored a good goal for different reasons, reacting well and keeping it alive for the second and third phase. We then got caught a little bit on the back foot but that can happen. They do tend to throw caution to the wind, we know that, and I thought we were going to see the game through because they weren’t really creating a lot and they get a goal out of nothing.

“It was a really unfortunate goal. I don’t like to excuse the goals we concede. I always think you can stop them but today was a really unfortunate one. I think that was a bit harsh on us. I thought we had done enough.

“The overall performance was at least decent and there’s more to come.”
