However, the young Leeds keeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell was a bright spark for them throughout the game.
The 21-year-old was fantastic in between the sticks and Paul Heckingbottom’s side could have humiliated if not for the Northern Ireland U21 international.
Peacock-Farrell has managed to establish himself as a regular starter at Elland Road and the fans will be expecting more of these performances from the talented young keeper in future.
Former Leeds keeper Paul Robinson seemed very impressed with the 21-year-old’s showing against Aston Villa. The 38-year-old took to Twitter to congratulate the player after the game.
Congrats on man of the match lad 👏👏👏 @bailey_pf

Thanks Robbo 👍🏼
