Leeds (0) vs. Aston Villa (3)
The little magician had another strong match earning him a back-to-back man of the match honours as Villa eased past Leeds. Coutinho opened the scoring in the 22nd minute. A quiet remaining of the half led to a flurry in the second. Leeds almost equalized but Raphinha’s shot went across the face of the goal. It was in the 65th minute, that Villa doubled up their opponents off a low finish by Matthew Cash. Another goal eight minutes later by Calum Chambers put the match to bed. Leeds losing streak goes to six matches and the second under new manager Jesse Marsch.
