West Ham United boss David Moyes was left disappointed after seeing his side beaten 3-2 by Leeds at London Stadium.
Jack Harrison hit a hat-trick for the visitors, who had been knocked out of the FA Cup by the Hammers a week earlier.
And a third game in a week took its toll on West Ham's bid for a Champions League spot, with Moyes unhappy his side had to play a rearranged match with Norwich on Wednesday.
He said: "I think it was a huge factor today. The people who are putting the games in place do not understand the importance of recovery.
"Today was really tough for us to get back out. We didn't feel the Norwich game should have been put in, we let them know that but they refused our request. They wanted it played but it's had an effect on today's game.
"Maybe we're not being tough enough, maybe we should have fought harder for it. Maybe I'm going to do that in the future."
Leeds arrived in east London without nine first-team players and lost two more in the first half, with seven teenagers on their bench included 15-year-old Archie Gray.
Harrison opened the scoring from Adam Forshaw's lay-off in the 10th minute, before Jarrod Bowen equalised with a header.
Leeds retook the lead almost immediately when Luke Ayling flicked on a corner from Raphinha and Harrison pounced at the far post.
A solo goal from Pablo Fornals hauled West Ham level again, but Raphinha capitalised on some sloppy defending to tee up Harrison for the third on the hour.
Bowen should have equalised in stoppage time, but he attempted to chest the ball into the net and sent it over the crossbar.
"I can't see why he wouldn't head it instead of chesting it in," added Moyes.
"Maybe if it's a decision between your feet and your head, but not your chest and your head.
"But Jarrod scored a great goal and did a lot of good things. It happens, and we shouldn't have been in that position."
Marcelo Bielsa saluted the desire of his players, as Leeds registered back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time this season.
He said: "I think it was a triumph for the players. Each of them did things which indicated a very big desire to win.
"I clearly observed this was a game for each of the players, there was a determination in the search for the victory that was very visible today.
"I think the biggest factor in the game is when a footballer puts so much effort into what they do the virtues they possess come out.
"The three forwards complimented themselves in a very harmonious way.
"Raphinha improved Dan James and Harrison with the types of balls he gave them. Harrison scored three goals and James opened up spaces constantly. It was a very big effort."
