Aston Villa: Martinez, Ashley Young, Konsa, Mings, Digne, Ramsey, Kamara, Douglas Luiz, Buendia, Bailey, Watkins. Subs: Sanson, Ings, Alex Moreno, Chambers, Nakamba, Bednarek, Coutinho, Olsen, Kaden Young.

Leeds: Meslier, Ayling, Koch, Cooper, Struijk, Roca, Adams, Aaronson, Gnonto, Harrison, Rodrigo. Subs: Firpo, Bamford, Llorente, Perkins, Robles, Kristensen, Gelhardt, Wober, Greenwood.

We will bring you all the action and updates from today’s game in the live blog below:

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.

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.

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.
