Leeds United certainly caught the imagination yesterday evening at the Emirates in the FA Cup as they took Arsenal to task in their match before eventually losing out 1-0.
The Whites have put in some memorable performances over the last couple of seasons thanks to the work of Marcelo Bielsa and his staff and on a stage like the Emirates they got the chance to show what they were all about.
Realistically they should have been at least two, even three, goals in front by half-time but the scores were level and after a clear rocket from Mikel Arteta, Arsenal were the better side after the break.
Even so, Leeds were hugely impressive and the football world enjoyed what they saw with Joe Lolley – of Nottingham Forest – doffing his cap to the work of their Argentine manager:
From a football nerd point of view, Bielsa is just an incredible coach.

Naturally, this has got fans talking and both Leeds and Forest fans took to Twitter to discuss things with the winger.
Let’s take a look at the best of what has been said:
I agree. Just hoping he runs his players into the ground again and they blow up

High pressing, comfortable on the ball. Every player on the same page and positionally excellent. Just exude confidence in all they do.

They're gonna batter us next month and we're gonna win 1-0.
