Aston Villa v Leeds match report

Taking a look at line-ups, goals, assists, clean sheets and anything else we could highlight that could have implications for FPL managers. We cover the Aston Villa v Leeds match report. Covering eye test and key moments through-out the match with the help of the Fantasy Football Scout members area.

Overviewing the Aston Villa v Leeds match report can be helpful in identifying key moments in the match. This can then give FPL managers a good insight into which players and teams looked good, key injuries, fitness and even more to help us make decisions in FPL.

Aston Villa line-up

Striker Ollie Watkins (£7.1m) starts the match who will be looking to continue his good form and add to his three returns in the last four matches. Budget midfielder Leon Bailey (£4.5m) starts his fourth match in a row.

Leeds line-up

One of the most popular Leeds assets starts. Midfielder Rodrigo (£6.4m) has bagged five returns in his last 10 matches and could be in demand with great fixtures ahead. Striker Wilfried Gnonto (£5m) starts again after scoring in his previous match against West Ham.

Key moments – first half

  • The match gets underway.
  • GOAL! A fast counter attack from a Leeds corner is spearheaded by Aston Villa’s Boubacar Kamara (£4.8m) who spreads the ball to fellow midfielder Leon Bailey (£4.5m). The winger cuts in on his left foot and places the ball into the back of the net! It’s 1-0 to Aston Villa!
  • There has been a significant change as Lucas Digne (£4.6m) is replaced by new signing Alexandre Moreno (£4.5m) due to injury.
  • CHANCE! Leeds midfielder Jack Harrison (£5.8m) makes a bursting run down the left flank, beating his opponent and whips in a dangerous ball to Rodrigo who fluffs the ball at his feet.
  • Wilfried Gnonto wins a free kick in a dangerous position outside the Aston Villa box. It’s a clever pass by Leeds midfielder Brenden Aaronson (£5.5m) who finds Rodrigo but goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez (£4.9m) is quick off his line.
  • CHANCE! Leon Bailey finds space down the right flank and a perfect pass to Ollie Watkins could have made it 2-0 but the pass is too heavy.
  • Ollie Watkins seems to be really struggling now as he has tries numerous times to shake off a knock but can’t. There is a significant change as Ollie Watkins is replaced by Striker Danny Ings (£6.4m).
  • Leeds defender Robin Koch (£4.5m) picks up a yellow card for his foul.
  • CHANCE! Jack Harrison punches a through ball to Rodrigo who looks to be one on one with the goalkeeper, he takes it past him and tries to pass the ball into the net but Alexandre Moreno is there to clear off the line.
  • CHANCE! What a save by Emiliano Martinez! Leeds defender Luke Ayling (£4.5m) crosses a beautiful ball into the path of Jack Harrison but the goalkeeper makes himself huge to save!
  • The whistle blows for half time.

Key moments – second half

  • The second half is underway.
  • Both sides have started well and both have had early positioning in their opponent’s box.
  • CHANCE! Brenden Aaronson finds a pass amongst a quick counter attack. His pass reaches Wilfried Gnonto who tries to bend it round Emiliano Martinez but it’s a great save.
  • Boubacar Kamara receives a yellow card for his foul.
  • GOAL! Leon Bailey finds a left footed shot on the edge of the box, the goalkeeper makes a save but Emiliano Buendia nods in the rebound to make it 2-0 to Aston Villa!
  • There has been a significant change as Jack Harrison is replaced by striker Patrick Bamford (£7.3m).
  • CHANCE! Aston Villa have a huge opportunity to make it 3-0 as Boubacar Kamara dinks the ball into Danny Ings who is in a great position to score but its a big save from the goalkeeper.
  • There has been significant changes as strikers Sam Greenwood (£4.2m) and Joe Gelhardt (£5.1m) have both entered the field of play.
  • GOAL! Wilfried Gnonto continues to cause serious problems for the Aston Villa backline. The young winger worms his way into the box with power and pace and places the ball on a plate for Patrick Bamford who scores! Its 2-1 to Aston Villa!
  • Leeds goalkeeper Illan Meslier (£4.5m) comes way out of his box to make a strange challenge and picks up a yellow card.
  • Emiliano Martinez picks up a yellow card for time wasting. Both goalkeepers have now been booked.
  • Wilfried Gnonto is impressing tonight and has won a free kick in a very good position for Leeds but the cross is cleared for a corner. The resulting corner comes to nothing.
  • The match ends and Aston Villa win the match 2-1.
