Chaos as brawl breaks out after controversial Leeds' opener

A chaotic few minutes at Elland Road saw two goals and a red card as a brawl broke out between Leeds and Aston Villa players.

When Jonathan Kodjia went down injured, half of the Aston Villa players appeared to stop, expecting Leeds to kick the ball out. However, they played on and Mateusz Klich went on to score, infuriating the Villa players.

In the ensuing melee, an Aston Villa player was sent off. Then, bizarrely, Leeds boss Marco Bielsa ordered his players to let Villa score an equalising goal straight after kick off.
