Leeds United pulled off a stunning comeback at Villa Park on Sunday afternoon to emerge victorious by a 3-2 scoreline against Aston Villa.
The Whites found themselves 2-0 down at half-time, but Marcelo Bielsa’s substitute Jack Clarke pulled one back after the break before centre-back Pontus Jansson levelled the tie. Deep in stoppage time, Kemar Roofe pounced to fire the Whites ahead and seal a dramatic victory for his side.

One player who didn’t get on the scoresheet, but still played a vital role in Leeds’ triumph, was Pablo Hernandez. The 4-cap former Spain international provided two assists for his teammates and was a creative threat throughout the match.
Hernandez looked much younger than his 33 years, as he played with the high level of energy, tenacity and endeavour expected of Bielsa’s teams.
After the game, many Leeds fans took to Twitter to congratulate Hernandez on his fine performance against the Villans…
Just the 2 assists for Hernandez today… 7 goals and 9 assists is unreal for the half a season gone.
