Leeds Coach Marcelo Bielsa cut an abandoned figure after watched his team lose 7-0 first City of Manchester inside Premier League on Tuesday night.

The result marks Leeds’ heaviest-ever defeat in the highest flight, with Kevin De Bruyne scoring twice Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Riyad Mahrez, John Stones and Nathan Ake also scored.

Man City’s victory puts them at the top of the table with 4 points, while Leeds are 16th – 5 points behind the relegation group.

“This is the worst performance in [my] four years [here],” Bielsa said after Tuesday’s game.

“We were never able to equalize the game. The feeling we give is that whatever they try, we can’t stop them.

“It’s not that Man City played very well; It was more remarkable how badly we played than how well Man City played. City play like this all the time, or something like that, but we have never played so badly in the last four years.

“It’s not good enough. There is nothing positive to remove our performance. I couldn’t find anything that might be of value.

“Naturally in these cases, it is not the individual that fails, but the organization.

“I can’t give any justification, the game went exactly as we thought it would. We were mentally prepared to avoid everything that happened and we didn’t gain anything.”

Leeds next face Arsenal in the Premier League, hosting the Gunners at Elland Road on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Man City will visit Newcastle United on Sunday.
