The loss means that Leeds can now concentrate only on the league, where they are aiming to earn promotion at the end of the season.

Arteta admitted he let his players know his feelings at half time, adding: 'When I see what I don't want to see - and the standards we want to set - then I can't be happy and I have to let them know.
