Kyle Walker has admitted his shock over how Leeds United approached their game with Manchester City on Saturday.

The Whites drew 1-1 at Elland Road and were unlucky not to walk away with all three points after creating numerous chances.

The City defender claimed he couldn’t believe how Leeds went about the game, and was shocked at their tactics, especially in defence.

Walker compared the game at Elland Road to basketball, heaping praise on Marcelo Bielsa’s men for their fearless approach.

“Leeds, I promise you Andros, is the weirdest game,” he told the ITV Football Show.

“It’s like basketball. Seriously, I couldn’t believe it. If Raheem was playing on the left and he goes over to the right, their right-backs going over to the right.

“It’s incredible. I think they’ve got a system that works and to obviously achieve what they’ve achieved in the Championship and then coming up and doing it in the Premiership as well.”

It was incredible to watch, with a number of City players already claiming they were surprised by Leeds.

Bielsa set his side up in the exact same manner as he always does, and after weathering an early storm, they took the game to City.

Leeds kept more possession, won 16 more tackles and completed nearly 40 more passes according to WhoScored.

Walker was shocked, and the Whites will have sent yet another message to the Premier League after this impressive draw.
