Jesse Marsch ‘gutted’ after Leeds United’s 4-3 defeat at Tottenham

Jesse Marsch said he was ‘gutted’ after Leeds United suffered a 4-3 loss at Tottenham Hotspur. 

The Whites went ahead within the first ten minutes through in-form winger Crysencio Summerville. 

However, Spurs quickly equalised with Harry Kane slamming home from close range.   

Rodrigo Moreno put Leeds back in front just before the interval, but the scores were level again after Ben Davies drilled in a low shot early in the second half. 

The Whites looked close to sealing three points after Rodrigo’s second goal in the 76th minute. However, Rodrigo Bentancur struck a late double to register a dramatic victory. 

The visitors’ misery was further compounded when Tyler Adams got his marching orders after receiving his second yellow card. Marsch was not happy after the game.

He told BBC Sport: “I’m gutted – I feel like someone has ripped my heart out. I thought we had control of the match, but then we let it slip.”

Marsch was under enormous pressure after Leeds’ 3-2 home loss against Fulham last month

Many fans called for his sacking following that defeat, but the American boss has since brought about improvement in his side. 

The Whites stunned Liverpool 2-1 at Anfield before edging past Bournemouth with a 4-3 home victory. 

They were excellent going forward against Tottenham and could have come away with all three points if they had been a little better in defence.
