Leeds United drew 0-0 with Brentford at the weekend, continuing their run without a win in the Premier League as they sit just outside the bottom three.

The pressure is on Jesse Marsch at the moment to find form in the Premier League to lift Leeds away from the relegation battle they currently find themselves in.

Their latest meeting was a home clash against a Brentford side flying in their second Premier League season, currently in the top half and very comfortable under Thomas Frank.

Leeds again performed well on the day as they controlled the match and had the better share of chances, with the Bees failing to get a shot on target in the match.

However, it’s also another good performance that has not yielded a win for Marsch.

Here, we look at how the squad reacted to the game as the dust settles on the weekend’s stalemate…

Marc Roca

Roca again started in midfield in a game that did little to showcase the talent he clearly has with the ball at his feet.

It’s been a frustrating start to life at Elland Road for Roca and others, with the potential there to make it work in different circumstances.

He remained positive, though, as he shared this message on Instagram:

Illan Meslier

For the first time in a while, Meslier had virtually nothing to do in the way of goalmouth action against Brentford, as they failed to register a shot on target.

The overriding message from the Leeds players and staff is that the game couldn’t have been played much better, with Meslier sharing this post on Instagram:

Will Leeds sign a midfielder before the January deadline?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Pascal Struijk

It wasn’t a vintage performance from Pascal Struijk on the left side of defence, but it’s another example of the proof that he needs to play in the centre of defence to play his best football.

Struijk was much more ‘to the point’ when it came to giving his view on how the match should have gone on Sunday.

He posted this on Instagram:

Jesse Marsch

Marsch was also keen to underline the quality of Leeds’ performance to shut out Brentford while posing the better threat out of the two sides on the day.

Maintaining positivity in this run of form is a key for Marsch and while the fans are seeing through the talk, it’s something that is attempted to keep player morale as high as possible.

The manager posted this on Twitter:
