Leeds United remain top of the Championship table after the Whites came from behind to seal a 3-2 victory in a pulsating thriller against Aston Villa on Sunday.
The home side went 2-0 up at the break at Villa Park, with goals coming from Tammy Abraham and Conor Hourihane.
However, Marcelo Bielsa’s side showed great fighting spirit and never-say-die attitude, as they came from behind to secure all three points.
Jack Clarke and Pontus Jansson scored in the second half to level to scoreline before Kemar Roofe scored deep in the injury time to earn all three points.
It was quite obvious that when you win a game of this magnitude in such a dramatic way, the players are bound to enjoy with their fans. However, Aston Villa boss Dean Smith didn’t like it, and took a jibe at the players and the fans, saying they celebrated as if they have won the title.
Leeds fans took to social networking site Twitter to express their reaction. These are some best tweets:
Like he wouldn’t have celebrated the same ?. SALT.

Dean Smith needs to have a word with himself. Leeds have been through an awful time, they are top at Xmas and have just came from two goals down to win. The day people stop celebrating last minute winners is the day I stop watching football.
