The Leeds United boss relied on the latest staffing news from his team, on the back of the Watford club takedown this afternoon.
Llorente makes the difference
The whites were back in action recently.
After falling to another worrying loss at the hands of West Ham last weekend, Bielsa and company on Saturday welcomed Watford at Elland Road, seeking a first victory of the season in the Premier League.
And, when all was said and done, this is exactly what Leeds accomplished.
A solo goal proved all that was required to see the hosts at home in West Yorkshire, as a fight in the Hornets’ area from a corner kick culminated in Diego Llorente returning home from a short distance. .

However, in the middle of a pleasant afternoon for Leeds, a concern almost inevitably arose at the front of the staff.
The Whites have been forced to deal with a host of fitness issues in the opening weeks of the season, with players like Patrick Bamford, Mateusz Klich, Raphinha and Jack Harrison all spending time on the sidelines.
And, on Saturday, another was added to this list, as Stuart Dallas was forced to limp out of the procedure with just over ten minutes to go.
In turn, during his post-game press conference tonight, Marcelo Bielsa was inevitably drawn to the well-being of his versatile midfield star.
The Leeds boss, however, admitted that it was too early to provide any kind of accurate diagnosis.
On the other hand, an explanation was received for the total absence of Crysencio Summerville, who was lost in front of Watford due to illness:
