Leeds go one up at Villa after James arrowed strike

Leeds United star Daniel James has stunned Aston Villa with a lovely driven finish into the bottom corner.

The Welsh international picked up the ball from Rodrigo inside the penalty area after he pinched the ball back from a Villa defender.

James was then able to swivel and shoot in the area with the defender failing to get tight enough to prevent a shot from him.

His shot then travelled all the way into the opposing bottom corner, with Emiliano Martinez left scrambling at thin air.
