'Liability', 'Had a shocker' - Leeds fans destroy mainstay for performance v Aston Villa

Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to destroy Luke Ayling for his performance against Aston Villa at Elland Road on Friday night.

Ayling, 26, continued his streak of playing every single minute of the Championship this season in the 1-1 draw against Steve Bruce’s side, but many fans have started to suggest that the first-team mainstay is looking tired and needs a rest.

Pontus Jansson put Leeds ahead in the 19th minute as they looked to continue their recent resurgence.

However a swing in momentum after the break saw Henri Lansbury snatch an equaliser for Aston Villa to ensure that their march up the Championship standings wasn’t halted.

Leeds moved up to seventh with the draw but could have been level on points with sixth-placed Derby if they managed to hang on to all three points.

Although it was overall a decent result against one of the league’s high-flying sides, not many fans were impressed with Ayling’s display, with a lot of the Elland Road faithful pointing the finger at his poor passing.

One supporter stated that the right-back “had a shocker” against the Villains.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Ayling has made 24 appearances across all competitions for Leeds this season, featuring in every game across the Championship and the clubs’ League Cup run, so calls for the ex-Bristol City defender to be rested are perhaps justified.
