Leeds boss Bielsa: Goals must come from more than Bamford

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa admits he's concerned about their goalscoring form.

Leeds have scored seven in seven league games and will be without injured striker Patrick Bamford again on Saturday at Southampton.

Bielsa said: “I don't think it depends on Patrick, we construct our offensive game in a collective manner.

“Of course having a player that converts the chances increases the possibility of getting more goals. You asked me if it worries me, I say yes.

“I would like that we create more chances at goal and increase the efficiency."

Bamford, second highest English goalscorer in the top flight behind Harry Kane last season, has missed Leeds' last two Premier League matches due to an ankle injury.

“Both things have a margin for improvement and of course, if Patrick were here, we would enjoy the contribution that he makes.

“But in a parallel way we are ready to be at the same level in the games when he is not there."
