Mikel Arteta has been full of praise for Marcelo Bielsa ahead of this weekend’s game at Elland Road between Leeds and Arsenal.

Bielsa has overhauled the playing style and ideology at Leeds United. He has done a great job as he spearheaded the Whites’ return to the Premier League.

Leeds have made a good impression so far in the top flight. They have been involved in entertaining games against Liverpool and Manchester City.

They have picked up victories over Fulham, Sheffield United and Aston Villa. But they have recently lost heavily to Leicester City and Crystal Palace.

Arsenal meanwhile have made an inconsistent start to the new season. They sit eleventh, with four wins and four defeats from the opening eight league games.

Last time out they fell to a 3-0 defeat to Aston Villa at the Emirates. Arteta and his team will be desperate to bounce back with a win over Leeds on Sunday.

Arteta recently told the Daily Mail that Pep Guardiola recently informed him about the great qualities Bielsa possesses as a coach:

“All positive and incredible things.

“First his work rate, the number of hours that he puts in, the details, and the people around him to support, help and always evolve his ideas, and then who he is as a person. And that’s all really well respected by everybody that works alongside him.

“He has a unique way of training, of putting things together, and making a team play the way that every single player believes in what they have to do, and even if he’s difficult and challenging they still do it.

“I admire him he’s had a really challenging career, but what he’s managed to do – without winning many many trophies – but put a stamp on the football world is a big merit to him.”

Just about all of the greatest uncapped Premier League players ever were pursued by England. And only four of them were English.
