The first half was a bit exciting with limited chances created by both teams. Leeds had more ball possession (60%) but Aston villa had more shots on target (2). The best chance of the first half was in the 44th minutes where Bamford managed to shoot wide.
Second half was better as both team showed more intent. Leeds came out with the three points thanks to Patrick Bamford hat trick. His hat trick for Leeds broke their record which has been there for 17 years.
Bamford became the first player to score a premier league hat trick for Leeds since Mark Viduka in a 6-1 win over Charlton in April 2003. Great achievement by the lad as he has justified the trust bestowed upon him by the coach.
