Jesse Marsch hits defiant Leeds United tone as board conversations become clear in Fulham loss

By

Jesse Marsch’s Leeds United press conference is taking place at Elland Road after today’s clash with Fulham. Follow everything the head coach has to say about Sunday’s match below as we bring you most of the questions and answers in full from the debrief.

Before the match, Marsch made six changes in an eyebrow-raising team selection. Luke Ayling, Liam Cooper, Pascal Struijk, Sam Greenwood, Jack Harrison and Rodrigo were all drafted in from the start.

Rasmus Kristensen, Diego Llorente, Junior Firpo, Tyler Adams, Crysencio Summerville and Patrick Bamford were all shunted out of the XI. Adams, it became clear, had a minor muscle injury ruling him out entirely.

The first half of the match saw Leeds take a precious lead through Rodrigo, but also concede a sloppy, predictable, easy equaliser via Aleksandar Mitrovic’s head. There were big stops on the line from Marc Roca and Robin Koch before a one-on-save from Illan Meslier too.

The second half went from bad to worse with Bobby De Cordova-Reid and then Willian adding the second and third goals to a miserable afternoon which puts the head coach under immense pressure. Follow everything the head coach has to say below.
