Villa's good league form under Emery continues, and although they stay in 11th, they're now level on points with Chelsea above them. They visit Southampton next time out. Leeds stay 14th, just two points clear of the drop. They have their FA Cup third-round replay against Cardiff City on Wednesday.

Villa hold on to beat Leeds 2-1. The hosts got off to the perfect start, with Bailey curling in a brilliant effort to put them ahead just three minutes in. Leeds pushed for an equaliser, and Rodrigo had one disallowed for offside just before the break. Villa got their second after a bright start to the second half when Buendia nodded in the rebound from Bailey's saved effort - it was originally flagged offside, but VAR overturned it. Bamford came off the bench to pull one back, but they couldn't snatch a late point.

Villa just can't keep hold of the ball and Adams hooks it back upfield. Bamford was coming back from an offside position though, and the flag brings the move to an end.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

22:01 , admin

Young sticks out an arm to block Gnonto's run and Leeds have a free-kick down the left. Greenwood curls it in and Gelhardt nods it back towards the near post, but Mings helps it out for a corner.

Buendia has scored two goals in his three Premier League games in 2023, as many as he had in his previous 20 appearances in the competition beforehand.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

21:51 , admin

Bailey's run is blocked off by Cooper, but then Wober sloppily gifts the ball to Coutinho in his own half. He spots Meslier off his line and tries his luck from a long way out, but his chip lands on the roof of the net.

Moreno is getting a lot of joy down the left and he floats a wonderful cross in, which Wober glances on to stop Ramsey from getting a touch behind him. Bailey brings it down, but his shot is blocked by Cooper.

Substitution Brenden Russell Aaronson Sam Greenwood

BLOCK! Gnonto is taking matters into his own hands, starting down the left before cutting inside and getting past three Villa defenders with some clever footwork. He takes aim, but Young recovers just in time to help it wide of the near post.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

21:39 , admin

GOOD SAVE! Moments ago, Moreno fired into the side netting, and Villa are almost in again! This time, Buendia threads it through for Ings, who lets it bounce before hitting the shot, and Meslier rushes out to smother it.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

21:38 , admin

Once again, Leeds look to their left to make something happen and Gnonto fizzes a dangerous ball into the six-yard box. Bamford is caught on his heels so Konsa is able to clear it, and Rodrigo can't get his shot on target.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

21:35 , admin

Leeds aren't happy as they're claiming that Villa are time-wasting. Gnonto in particular is starting to show his frustration as he rushes Young into a series of throw-ins.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

21:32 , admin

It's a tight decision, but it's Struijk that was didn't step up in time and is just playing Buendia onside through the middle.

Yellow Card Boubacar Bernard Kamara

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

21:28 , admin

CHANCE! Leeds win a free-kick in their own half which is looped over the top to Rodrigo. The flag doesn't go up and he cuts inside from the right before drilling a low shot into the side netting.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

21:27 , admin

It's getting a little sloppy from both sides here. Leeds' quick corner is wasted as Harrison's cross is blocked and Bailey breaks on the counter. He keeps hold of it for too long though and runs straight into Adams.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

21:24 , admin

Kamara scuffs a clearance straight to Adams, whose first thought is to look for Ayling down the right. He loops a deep cross into the box, but there's too much on it for Rodrigo.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

21:22 , admin

CHANCE! Nobody is picking Bailey up on the right again, and though his first touch forces him wide, he swings a good cross into the box. Cooper gets there in front of Ings to half-clear it to Luiz, and he whips his shot wide of the near post.

GOOD SAVE! Leeds go straight up the other end and Gnonto is picked out on the left of the box. He curls his shot between Konsa and Young in front of him, and Martinez stretches to tip it away.

SAVE! It's a lovely first touch from Moreno to flick it over Roca and he plays a one-two with Ings to get to the edge of the box. Koch is standing his ground in front of him, but the substitute is able to poke it towards goal and Meslier holds it.

Moreno makes a good run down the left and he drills a low cross through Ayling's legs to pick out Ings in the middle. He gets the shot away first time, but it's well blocked by Cooper.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

21:15 , admin

Mings is caught in two minds and before he knows it, he's dispossessed on the halfway line by Rodrigo. He bursts down the right before squaring it into the box to Harrison. He touches it into Aaronson, but his shot is deflected over the bar.

Marsch was clearly not happy with how his side started the game, but they've responded well to going behind. They created some good chances and will be looking to pick up where they left off at the end of the first half. Villa are set up to catch Leeds out on the counter but didn't manage a shot other than their goal. Emery will be looking to change that after the break.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

21:01 , admin

Bailey's early goal separates the teams at the break, with Villa beating Leeds 1-0. It took just under two minutes for the Jamaican to break the deadlock after a quick counter, and he brilliantly curled his shot into the far side of the net. Leeds have been the better side since though, with Harrison hitting the outside of the post before forcing a superb save out of Martinez. Rodrigo thought he'd equalised, but it was disallowed for offside.

Tempers are boiling over again after Cooper threw Buendia to the side. There's a coming together between the players, with their team-mates having to drag them away, but they get away with a talking to.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

20:52 , admin

It's a hopeful ball forward by Roca towards Ayling, and the right-back isn't getting anywhere near it. Martinez comes right to the edge of his box to collect it and there are shouts that he just stepped out of the area, but he just got it right.

Leeds are keeping the pressure on as they look to find an equaliser before the break. Another move breaks down, allowing Villa to look for their long out ball to Bailey, but again, he can't keep it in.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

20:48 , admin

OFFSIDE! Into seven minutes of stoppage time, and Leeds have a goal ruled out! Gnonto curls a wonderful cross into Rodrigo, who chests it down for Aaronson who sees a shot blocked. The Spaniard then turns in the follow-up, but he was offside in the original move.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

20:47 , admin

WHAT A SAVE! It's another good move from Leeds as Adams switches it out to Roca at the far post. He cushions it to Harrison across goal and he pokes it forward first time, but Martinez makes himself big to get a strong hand on it.

The frustration is starting to boil over for Leeds as Gnonto is pushed off the ball and the pitch. No free-kick is given, much to his disbelief, and the referee calls him over to calm him down.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

20:44 , admin

WHAT A BLOCK! Leeds take a free-kick quickly in their own half and Rodrigo gets between the two centrebacks to latch onto Harrison's pass. He takes it around Martinez, who rushed off his line, before having a go from a tight angle, but Moreno slides in to help it wide of the near post.

Everything that Leeds do is going down their left and they win another free-kick. Adams floats it into the far post and Aaronson flicks it on, but then can't get past Mings.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

20:41 , admin

Despite Adams' best efforts to keep the ball, he's dispossessed and Kamara comes away with it. He plays it down the wing for Bailey to chase, but he can't keep it in.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

20:38 , admin

There's a scramble in the box as Harrison curls another corner into the box, and three players end up on the floor. It's cleared as far as Adams, but he can't pick out a team-mate with the follow-up.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

20:37 , admin

Young is caught out of position as Harrison slides a lovely throughball down the left to Aaronson. He pulls a good cross back from the byline, and Konsa gets there just in time to stop Rodrigo from having a shot.

Substitution Oliver George Arthur Watkins Daniel William John Ings

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

20:31 , admin

Watkins has gone down off the ball now, and it's looking like he's still struggling after an earlier challenge from Koch. The medical team are on and Ings is already warming up.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

20:29 , admin

Luiz is clipped, but the referee plays the advantage when it bounces out to Young. He chips it over the top to Bailey, but he gets too much on his low cross, and there's nothing Watkins can do with that.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

20:28 , admin

Another Leeds attack fizzles out and Villa look to break quickly on the counter again. Bailey leads the charge down the right this time, and makes a great run, but then curls his cross straight into Meslier's gloves.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

20:26 , admin

Villa are struggling to keep hold of the ball when they do win it back. Kamara steps in with a good interception, but his second touch lets him down and almost sets Rodrigo through the middle, but Luiz gets to it first.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

20:24 , admin

OFF THE POST! Gnonto is toppled over by Konsa just outside the box. It's a clever set-piece from Aaronson as he slides it through to Rodrigo on the edge of the wall. He turns before Luiz crashes into him and Harrison backheels the loose ball against the outside of the post.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

20:22 , admin

Gnonto loses the ball high upfield this time and Young goes long over the top, looking for Watkins. He's got Koch at his back and he can't bring it down under pressure, gifting possession straight back to the visitors.

It's a great run by Harrison down the left as he pushes his way past Konsa before fizzing a dangerous low cross into the near post. Rodrigo shrugs off Mings on the turn, but Ramsey gets back to take it off him before he can get a shot away.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

20:18 , admin

Martinez has taken a couple of risks already in this game, and there's another nervy moment when it's knocked back to him by Mings. The ball rolls through his legs and then he just manages to clear his lines before Rodrigo closes him down.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

20:17 , admin

Leeds are pressing high upfield and after winning it back on the left, Roca looks to try and set up an equaliser. He's curling it towards Rodrigo at the far post, but it hits Mings. There are shots for handball, but it hits his square in the chest.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

20:15 , admin

All five of Bailey's Premier League goals have come at Villa Park, with his last three all being scored in the opening seven minutes of matches.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

20:14 , admin

The space opens up in behind Leeds' defence and Buendia plays a throughball into the gap to set Watkins through the middle. He gets too much on it though, and Meslier rushes out of his area to hook it away.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

20:11 , admin

The stretcher isn't needed as Digne is able to walk off the pitch himself and he makes his way straight down the tunnel. Moreno comes on to make his Villa debut.

Digne is still down here and it's looking ever likely that he won't be able to carry on here. Moreno is being given instructions on the bench while referee Michael Oliver gestures that a stretcher is needed on the pitch.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

20:08 , admin

Digne stayed down after being dispossessed and it looks like a problem with his shoulder. The medical team are on, but it's not looking good for the defender.

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

20:07 , admin

Digne is caught on the ball deep in his own half by Harrison and his first thought is to fizz it into the box for Aaronson. He tries to take it around Mings, but Konsa is behind him to clear the danger.
