Meanwhile, @FocusOnLeeds added: “I really hope our players don’t forget that awful challenge by John McGinn on Archie Gray. I want him kicked from [pillar] to post in the league games next season.”
There was already bad blood between Villa and the Whites after a sequence of fiery clashes in recent years. Chaotic scenes took hold in a Championship match three years ago, in which Leeds caught Villa flat-footed by scoring while striker Jonathan Kodjia was down injured, only for manager Marcelo Bielsa to sportingly demand that his players allow the West Midlands outfit to equalise.
Villa star Anwar El Ghazi was sent off in the same game for an elbow on Patrick Bamford as tempers flared.
