Aston Villa 0-3 Leeds United FT- Leeds take three points from Villa Park- As it Happened


22:002 years ago

Full Time: Aston Villa 0-3 Leeds United

Leeds completely dominated Aston Villa for almost the full 90 minutes. The away side ran the Villa defence ragged with Cash and Targett looking drained after dealing with the wingers and full backs of Leeds running at them constantly. Its a reality for Dean Smith who needs to look at this game and go into the next one against Southampton with a different mindset. Great night for Leeds, awful one for Villa.

HT: Aston Villa 0-0 Leeds United

Been a very enjoyable game to watch so far with both sides having chances. Leeds and Bamford in particular have had the best chances. Villa have come the closest to scoring of the two sides but are lucky not to be going into half time down by a few goals.
20:492 years ago

An awful ball across the box from Leeds finds Trezeguet who tries to take it past Ayling but fouls him in the process.

The ball is put across by Helder Costa and completely missed from the centre of the box by Rodrigo. Leeds dominating the game with Villa hardly having a touch of the ball so far.

Leeds United coming into this game

Mixed form but impressive so far

Since winning the Championship, United have taken to the Premier League well and have gained many admirers from across the country. Bielsa's side have taken Liverpool and Manchester City close but only coming out with a point from both games.

Two wins against Fulham and Sheffield United have helped Leeds to tenth place in the table.

They're aggressive style of play has gained lots of attention and if they can take their chances more regularly, they will have a chance to win against any team they come up against.

Aston Villa coming into this game

Looking to create history

The Villains are looking to continue their march up the league after winning their first four games in the Premier League. Winning against Leeds would be the first time they have started a season with five wins out of five. A marked improvement has been seen from  last season where they stayed up by a point on the final day. 

New signings such as Emiliano Martinez, Ross Barkley and Ollie Watkins have had a massive impact on the team so far and with others also coming in to add to the squad, the Midlands based side look to push on this season.

Last Time Out

This is the first time that these two sides have met since the game in April 2019 where Mateusz Klich scored a controversial goal which sparked a brawl between players. Marcelo Bielsa sportingly allowed Villa to score unopposed and bad feeling has surrounded the fans of both clubs since that moment.
