Aston Villa locked horns with Leeds United at Elland Road earlier today as they looked to earn a good result on the road. The Villans were solid in the first half and managed to get to the half-time break with a 0-0 scoreline.

Luis Sinisterra was sent off by the referee in the 48th minute which put Aston Villa at a numerical advantage. The West Midlands club failed to be clinical in the final third and were held to a frustrating 0-0 draw away from home.

Let’s take a look at how each Aston Villa player fared during the clash against the Whites.

GK: Emiliano Martinez – 7/10

The Argentine keeper was a bit untidy with his ball distribution but made one good save in the game.

RB: Ashley Young – 7.5/10

He was solid at the back and created some decent chances in the final third.

CB: Ezri Konsa – 7/10

Konsa cleared the danger when needed and made one good run with the ball.

CB: Tyrone Mings – 6.5/10

He made a couple of crucial defensive contributions and was accurate with his passing.

CM: Douglas Luiz – 8/10

The Brazilian midfield ace anchored the midfield well and orchestrated two good chances in the final third.

CM: John McGinn – 7/10

RW: Leon Bailey – 6.5/10

He caused a few problems for the opposition defenders but didn’t do enough to register a goal.

ST: Ollie Watkins – 7/10

Watkins was a constant menace in front of the Leeds goal but failed to take any of his chances.

LW: Philippe Coutinho – 7.5/10

Coutinho created all kinds of problems for the opposition and was unfortunate to hit the crossbar.

Substitutes:

CB: Jan Bednarek – 6.5/10

Bednarek kept things solid at the back.

CAM: Emiliano Buendia – 6/10
