Leeds 1 Aston Villa 0 LIVE: Updates, team news, highlights from huge Championship clash | Football | Sport

Leeds vs Aston Villa Live Stream

45+4: PEEP!

The referee blows the whistle for half time.

It’s all been quite comfortable for Leeds so far with Aston Villa offering very little. 

45+3: CHANCE!

Ezgjan Alioski picks out the unmarked Liam Cooper with the resulting free kick but the central defender heads over. 

45+2: BOOKING!

Aston Villa’s former Leeds winger Robert Snodgrass sees yellow for a nasty tackle on Samuel Saiz.

It’s his fifth of the campaign. 

45: There will be three minutes of additional time. 

42: SUBSTITUTION!

Leeds winger Pablo Hernandez pulls up with an injury so Kemar Roofe is on to replace him.

Incidentally, the fourth official’s electronic board isn’t working. 

39: Caleb Ebukan is the enjoying the physical battle here – he outmuscles Glenn Whelan and knocks a ball into the box for Samuel Saiz but the Leeds playmaker cannot hold it up. 

33: CHANCE!

Robert Snodgrass picks out Keinan Davis on the byline, the Aston Villa striker pulls off a clever trick and cuts the ball back for the onrushing Glenn Whelan, who has the goal at his mercy… but he strokes it wide.  

That was a pitiful effort from the veteran midfielder. 

30: Caleb Ekuban picks out Samuel Saiz behind Aston Villa’s defence but he hesitates and runs out of space to shoot at goal. 

Instead, he cuts the ball back for Ekuban but Chris Samba is there to clear.

27: BOOKING!

Conor Hourihane picks up a yellow card after catching Ronaldo Vieira on the hip with his boot. 

Vieira is down receiving treatment. 

23: The Leeds fans are in full voice now, bellowing out ‘Marching On Together’.

19: GOAL!

Pablo Hernandez fires a corner to the near post, Pontus Jansson holds off Chris Samba and heads home from six yards.

Advantage Leeds!

18: SAVE!

It’s another weak effort from Aston Villa.

Keinan Davis sees a shot blocked, the ball falls to Robert Snodgrass, who attempts a daisy cutter but he fails to generate much power.

15: Pablo Hernandez teases the ball into the box and Sam Johnstone pulls away his hands. 

Fortunately, his error goes unpunished as Kalvin Phillips smacks the ball over the bar. 

14: Aston Villa are playing on the break and nearly get a chance but Conor Hourihane’s cross is fired straight at Felix Wiedwald.

8: SAVE!

Alan Hutton smacks a loose pass across the pitch, Albert Adomah manages to get on the end of it, he drives into the box and strikes at goal but it’s a weak shot and is easy for Felix Wiedwald to gather up. 

4: Aston Villa’s injured skipper John Terry is in the stands at Elland Road.

He was up at 6am this morning undergoing the latest stage of his rehabilitation process.

3: A decent start by Leeds, who are piling the pressure on Aston Villa’s defence. 

Samuel Saiz and Ezgjan Alioski are already looking lively. 

1: PEEP!

Leeds playmaker Samuel Saiz gets us underway. 

7.45pm: The players emerge from the tunnel and go through the pre-match handshakes. 

We are moments away from kick off.

7.30pm: Fancy a flutter?

Well, here are the odds thanks to our friends at Betsafe.

Leeds: 9/5

Draw: 21/10

Aston Villa: 17/10

It’s almost too close to call.

7.15pm: Leeds have a pretty woeful record against the current top six.

They have suffered defeats against Wolves, Cardiff, Sheffield United and Derby, with their only win…
