Here we have with us the Aston Villa Player Ratings for their exasperating draw against Leeds United. The Lions drew 3-3 with the Whites on a tiring evening at Villa Park in their Premier League clash on Thursday.
A roller coaster fixture in which no team took the hill. Leeds were the first to get on the score sheet, after a stunning goal by Daniel James. The Villans later equalized at the half-hour mark, after a superb finish by Philippe Coutinho. A few minutes later, the Brazilian made a remarkable through ball to set up Jacob Ramsay for the team’s second goal. Just a few minutes before half-time, the youngster scored his brace off of another astonishing assist by Coutinho.
Daniel James scored a heroic header during the additional time before entering the half-time. Bielsa’s men took charge in the second half, with Diego Llorente bagging an equalizer. Villa defender Ezri Konsa took a red card booking for an unnecessary foul on Leeds’ GK Ilan Meslier, as the game eventually ended 3-3.
