Leeds United visit Aston Villa this evening as the Whites resume their Premier League campaign following a 2-2 draw with Cardiff City in the FA Cup last weekend

Leeds have only recorded two wins in their last 16 games, meaning tonight’s fixture against an Aston Villa side who were just eliminated from the FA Cup by League Two Stevenage is an opportunity to put some distance between themselves and the relegation zone.

Jesse Marsch welcomes Liam Cooper and Illan Meslier back to the group this evening after the pair sat out Leeds’ Third Round tie last Sunday. Patrick Bamford is also expected to be named in Marsch’s travelling squad for the first time since late October.

Villa are currently three places and five points above Leeds in the Premier League table and drew 0-0 at Elland Road earlier this season. Since then, the Villans have switched managers, parting company with Steven Gerrard and appointing Unai Emery.

Aston Villa 2-1 Leeds United: Live match updates from Villa Park

73' Meslier spreads himself well to deny Ings. Wober playing him on.

72' Debutant Moreno shoots after Leeds commit bodies and Villa find the left-back in space. His effort into Meslier's side netting. 2-0.

66’ Struijk beaten by Bailey once more - and that’s his final act of the night. Jesse Marsch wishing he could have brought Max Wober on moments earlier. Bamford on for Harrison, too.

61' Rodrigo beats the offside trap from a free-kick, drives infield after picking up the ball and fires low past Martinez's near post. Wide.

56' Douglas Luiz fires over the top. Leeds still trailing 1-0. Bailey playing with Struijk on that side.

Before Gnonto chance

52' Villa come forward with Moreno down the left. Takes a few ricochets on the way through, riding tackles and eventually gets the ball back in the box. Shoots low but Meslier equal to it. First bit of goalkeeping he's had to do.
