Jesse Marsch told to not worry about one Leeds United incident v Manchester City - Sky pundit
We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United...
Paul Robinson doesn’t seem to want to hear excuses from Jesse Marsch after Leeds United lost 4-0 at home against Manchester City on Saturday.
After the heavy defeat, Marsch bemoaned the decision that saw a free-kick awarded to Man City before their first goal.
As quoted by LeedsLive, Micah Richards disagreed with Marsch’s complaint, saying that “it’s a clear free-kick” because Stuart Dallas took Raheem Sterling out.
While Robinson does agree with Marsch’s stance on the refereeing decision, he doesn’t feel as though the Leeds manager should be highlighting just one incident when his team lost 4-0.
“I think he’s got an argument in the case it was a free-kick,” Robinson told MOT Leeds News. “But I also don’t think that was a key point in the game.
“I don’t think that if that free-kick wasn’t given, City wouldn’t have scored.
“Leeds are defensively vulnerable and are always going to struggle against Man City, who are the best attacking team along with Liverpool in the Premier League.
“Leeds can put nine players behind the ball at times but it’s still Man City.
“You can understand why Marsch was frustrated with that decision, managers do look at individual incidents like that.
“But, I’m sorry, single incidents against Man City aren’t game-changers.”
Leeds have four games left to play and are now just two points clear of the Premier League’s relegation zone.
Everton, who are 18th and once place below the Whites, have a game in hand and easier fixtures on paper.
