Andrea Radrizzani posts message on Twitter after Leeds defeat vs Arsenal


Leeds United suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat against Arsenal in the FA Cup third-round tie on Monday night at the Emirates Stadium.

After the match, Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani took to social networking site Twitter to express his reaction. It was an inspired performance from the Yorkshire club and the Leeds owner felt they deserved more from the game. He has also thanked the away fans for their tremendous support.

Leeds were impressive in the first half, and created as many as 15 chances. Patrick Bamford came close to scoring for the visitors after he hit the bar.

Arsenal dominated the second half and got the goal through Reiss Nelson in the 55th minute.

Leeds enjoyed 58% of possession and registered 18 shots of which they managed to keep six on target, according to BBC Sport.

While Leeds would have liked to progress further in the competition, an early exit means they can focus completely on the Championship.

Leeds are firm favourites to secure automatic promotion this season, and find themselves at the top of the Championship table. They face Sheffield Wednesday next in the Championship.
