Aston Villa welcomed Leeds United at Villa Park earlier tonight as they looked to earn maximum points at home in the Premier League. The Villans made a bright start to the game and scored the opening goal in the third minute courtesy of Leon Bailey’s effort. The West Midlands club went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Emiliano Buendia doubled his team’s advantage in the 64th minute. However, Leeds got a goal back via Patrick Bamford’s finish in the 83rd minute. Still, Unai Emery’s men ended up grinding out an impressive 2-1 win at home.

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

GK: Emiliano Martinez – 6.5/10

The Argentine keeper made a few solid saves at the back but will be disappointed after conceding a late goal.

RB: Ashley Young – 7/10

He gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field but offered very little in the final third.

CB: Ezri Konsa – 7.5/10

Konsa didn’t do much wrong at the back and won a couple of aerial duels.

CB: Tyrone Mings – 6.5/10

He cleared his lines when needed and was a strong presence in the air.
