Here, after the full-time whistle, West Ham players faced Angelo Ogbonna, the celebrations seemed to delight them, the more relief they added.
Just 10 minutes before the Ogbanna title that included Leeds as another home defeat, you felt the skill from the visitors and Ilan Messier’s heroism would take West Ham back to London with just three points, which eventually took them to fifth place before the rest of their weekend action.
But it is nothing if this West Ham team continues to show these promising signs under David Moyes. Even after Ogbonna won, it was the visitors who pushed for another goal, although Leeds wanted to play a match against the equalizers, but they were not properly qualified in terms of player balance, given the dominance of their opponents.
There are obvious weaknesses behind the lead, both West Ham goals have not been underlined from the set piece, but only West Bromwich Albion have conceded more goals this season than Marcelo Bilesa’s side. However, the perfect litany of West Ham’s chances of making it emphasized that they are on the right track this season.
But how far can they go? “Okay, I can talk about what I’ve done so far,” Moyes said. “We were good at the end of the lockdown but we improved again. Playing Leeds is different from any other game you face in the league but we were good. We had a good chance of moving forward. ”
You always felt that Leeds, more than any other party, would suffer from some of the back-to-back fatigue of this campaign. This has been reflected in their home form since the promotion, with just one win from their first six home games this season and just five points. Here, they can have no complaints about the method of their latest defeat.
The promise they started with, which led to the withdrawal of the fine by Matthews Clichy after the Lucas Fabianski Foundation of Patrick Bamford, quickly faded. The forced defensive shuffle for the Leeds this season was a frustrating acquaintance and they were forced to work here, with Luke Ayling bidding farewell to center-back for the injured Robin coach.
But almost half of Leeds’ goals under Bilesar came from set pieces, and those old habits come back and disappoint them. Jarrod Bowen’s cross met Thomas Soussek, and Messilar should have done better to prevent the Czech midfielder from finishing third in four games, then he was crucial in keeping Leeds in the game.
But after missing several chances, most fell to Substein Haller, giving it another dead-ball, Aaron Creswell, and ending with Ogbona, it was decisive. “What’s happening isn’t exclusive,” Bielsa insisted. “We have this problem, we have done it before, we have solved it and now it is happening again. There is no secret to what we have to do
Strategic reshuffle after half-time, Bielsa changed his entire left and introduced West Ham to domination by introducing Jamie Shackleton and Holder Costa. Bamford briefly fired wide shots after the resumption, but soon it was mostly visitors who enjoyed the facilities.
Bowen found Haller unmarked in a six-yard box, but denied Fabian Balbuena by handing Pachlo Fernর্নls over to Messier before Pachlo Fern সরls pulled him tight. Mistakes and earn a very necessary point in his favor.
But when Ogbona outscored the Leeds defense, peeled back and went to the top corner of Messi’s net, the home defenders jumped to their knees, knowing their Achilles heel was hit again. There is no place in the Premier League to cut that level as Leeds begin to find their way.
