Leeds manager, Jesse Marsch, has described their 1-0 defeat to Arsenal as “cruel”.

Bukayo Saka’s first-half finish was enough to keep the Gunners top of the Premier League.

Marsch did not draw on the decisions made by VAR and the officials immediately after the game.

However, he used his post-match press conference to hail the performance of his team.

“Disappointed and frustrated a bit – however also proud of the way we played,” Marsch said.

“We’ve had a number of games where we’ve been on top of things and been the better team and we don’t find ways to get goals we deserve.

“And then it keeps the opponent around and it gives them the chance to have a goal or the lead which makes the sport feel very cruel. We need to get better in the final third.”
