Leeds United’s trip to Villa Park to face Aston Villa didn’t exactly go to plan in the opening 45 minutes of the Championship clash.
With the hosts gaining a 2-0 advantage early on in the game, manager Marcelo Bielsa’s side fought back admirably in the second period to take a 3-2 victory with goals on the day coming from Jack Clarke, Pontus Jansson and a late stoppage-time effort from Kemar Roofe.
With a number of talking points coming from the tie, Sky Sports took to social media to show a little bit of skill coming from Villa’s Yannick Bolasie and the unfortunate victim was Luke Ayling who found himself summarily nutmegged.

It was a decent showing from the 27-year-old as he returned to the pitch for the first time since last October having picked up an injury and taking to social media himself, he certainly saw the funny side.

With the game returning all three points though and a great confidence boost from coming back in that manner, I’m pretty sure Ayling couldn’t care less to be honest.
