Marcelo Bielsa's team lead 1-0 on aggregate thanks to Kemar Roofe and they will be looking to reach the final at Wembley, where Aston Villa are waiting.
Derby County's players have mocked Leeds United over the spygate saga after putting the Whites out in the Championship playoffs. "We're underdogs again and we'll have a tough game against a brilliant Villa team, but we're there". "We'll be underdogs again at Wembley, and I'm a bit anxious because I watched Villa do this last night, but our players deserve a moment".
Bielsa, who signed an initial two-year deal when he joined Leeds last summer, revealed earlier in May that he personally paid Leeds' £200,000 fine for spying on Championship opponents. The Chelsea loanees Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori posted the same message on Twitter: "I spy with my little eye, something beginning with W".
That put Leeds 2-0 up on aggregate but just before the break, a awful defensive mix-up between Leeds keeper Kiko Casilla and defender Liam Cooper allowed Derby substitute Marriott to convert into an empty net with his first touch of the game.
"The goal before halftime gave the players belief and I am so delighted for Jack Marriott". I think we all did. "We've prepared and got a result".Читайте также: Trump pardons author of flattering Trump biography
"I know what its like as a player, but the pressure is even more intense as a manager. We've had our ups and downs this season, not least conceding seven goals to Aston Villa, but this shows if you do the right things you get the breaks".
Of course, Frank Lampard and Derby weren't happy, and they would have been even angrier when they were beaten 2-0 at Elland Road a couple of days later.
Leeds won the last top flight title before the advent of the Premier League in 1992, but suffered a financial implosion around the turn of the century and fell from its perch toward the top of the English game.
But Derby hit back with three quick-fire goals - one on the stroke of half-time and two in the first 13 minutes of the second half.
Both sides finished with 10 men.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
