Leeds Score As Villa Player Down, Allow Them To Equalise Immediately

Leeds United scored one of the most controversial goals of all time as Mateusz Klich put the ball in the Aston Villa net despite the whole team stopping play for an injury to Jonathan Kodjia.

The Villa striker went down while everyone appeared to believe Leeds would put the ball out of play and allow Kodjia to get some treatment.

Tyler Roberts, however, opted to instead play the ball through to their Polish midfielder Klich who decided to keep the attack going and rifled a strike past Jed Steer in the Aston Villa net.

That led to a huge brawl between the two sides with Villa clearly aggrieved as winger Anwar El Ghazi was sent off for an apparent elbow on Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford.

Leeds then allowed Villa to equalise straight away by walking the ball into the empty net despite defender Pontus Jansson’s best efforts to keep it out.

The game finished 1-1 with both sides potentially meeting again in the playoffs.
