Leeds United 1-1 Aston Villa: Sheffield United promoted as Marcelo Bielsa lets visitors equalise in remarkable scenes

Sheffield United have been promoted to the Premier League after Leeds United and Aston Villa played out a quite remarkable 1-1 draw at Elland Road.

A fiery clash boiled over 15 minutes from time when Leeds went one goal ahead in contentions circumstances, with many of the players stopping as it appeared the Whites would put the ball out of play so Jonathan Kodjia could be treated for an injury.

Mateusz Klich went on to score, with a brawl breaking out immediately after he found the back of the net, and Marcelo Bielsa ordered his players to let Villa equalise.

Albert Adomah was allowed to fire past Kiko Casilla straight after the restart, though Villa ended the game with 10 men as Anwar El Ghzai was dismissed for an alleged elbow on Patrick Bamford during the brawl.
