Sunday’s clash at Villa Park between Aston Villa and Leeds United certainly set tongues racing given how the 90 minutes played out.

The hosts took a 2-0 advantage inside of the opening 20 minutes, but manager Marcelo Bielsa’s side hit back strongly in the second period and goals from Jack Clarke, Pontus Jansson and Kemar Roofe gave us a deserved three points and another victory in the Championship campaign of 2018/19.

Ahead of the game, and for the last few weeks, plenty have been talking about Leeds having had a bright start to a campaign in previous years but then falling away when it mattered, and it didn’t take some long at all to think it was happening again.

There’s a saying about those who laugh last though and our social media team were quickly on the ball when it was spotted.

They were far from alone as plenty of fans chipped in with their own comments about the prediction and how disastrous it turned out.

It’ll quieten some down for a while.
