3-0 up. 95th minute. Leeds United smother Aston Villa on the counter

Method in madness. Madness in method.

Aston Villa had won all 4 of their previous games this season before they met Leeds United on Friday.

Dean Smith’s side wanted to take the first place on the Premier League table, but Leeds wanted it differently.

Leeds United thrashed, dominated and outplayed Aston Villa with just one natural centre-back (Robin Koch) in the side.

With the game done & dusted after a second half hat-trick from Patrick Bamford, one would have guessed that Leeds United would take it slightly easy towards the end of the game.

Instead, they were seen bombing forward in numbers on the 95th minute as 4 Aston Villa players found themselves defending their goal against 7 Leeds United men.

What made it even more enthralling was the disappointment in their body language when Jack Harrison chose to take a shot instead of cutting back at one of the available Leeds United players.
