Jamie Carragher: Breaking down Leeds’ man-marking system


2:59 FREE TO WATCH: Highlights from Liverpool’s win over Leeds

“I thought it was a thing of beauty to watch. I think Leeds fans will get exceptional games this season, particularly once they get back into the ground, the atmosphere will be absolutely electric.

“For me, I think it’s the fact they made Liverpool so uncomfortable, there’s no doubt that they’re going to concede goals at the other end of the pitch.

4:52 Graeme Souness and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink discuss Leeds’ return to the Premier League after they almost held the current champions, Liverpool, at Anfield.

“I imagine it’s thrilling as a Leeds player every single day going into that training ground to work under that man [Marcelo Bielsa], to play the game in that way, to have that fearless approach where you’re told to go after your man, win the ball back, duels, one versus one – it’s a throwback but absolutely outstanding. I haven’t got one negative thing to say.

“Liverpool haven’t been beaten at home in 60 matches and those players will have come off the pitch on Saturday and they would have thought, ‘what was that? What on earth have I just played in?’, and they won’t have a clue what happened.

“There was no shape in the game and nothing you would ordinarily recognise in a game of football. It was brilliant.”
