Sunday afternoon’s clash at Elland Road as Leeds United welcomed Aston Villa certainly turned into a game to remember.
Villa made it 12 unbeaten as we took a point and we look set to finish in fifth place with the Play-Off spot already secured but a 1-1 draw doesn’t tell the full story.
Although the hosts dominated the game and created more chances overall, we were as much of a threat as they were really but it took a foul and the lack of an assistant referees flag for them to open the scoring, and after some handbags that saw Anwar El Ghazi wrongly sent off for violent conduct, Marcelo Bielsa instructed his players to let us score a leveller.
Statistics website Whoscored had players on each side with seven-plus scores but top of the pile for us was Conor Hourihane with a rating of 7.65.
Quickly following was Tyrone Mings on 7.57 but I’m guessing the centre-half would’ve been many fans’ proper Man of the Match after that.
Albert Adomah (7.49), Ahmed Elmohamady (7.36) and Axel Tuanzebe (7.01) completed our top five on the day.
One more to go and then we face the real games with promotion the prize on offer.
