Patrick Bamford’s hat-trick saw him create a little piece of history for Leeds as Aston Villa were denied first place in the Premier League

Bamford’s second-half hat-trick saw the forward become the second player to score in each of Leeds’ first three away games in a top-level league season, following Gordon Hodgson in 1937-38

It took the 27-year-old six Premier League goals for the season as Marcelo Bielsa’s side continued their impressive Premier League comeback

Villa was continuing their own piece of club history, having never won their first five league games of a season before They still haven’t and Friday night’s loss saw them miss the opportunity to dominate the Premier League table for the first time since October 2001

Bamford had a good chance for Leeds but his diving header from Ezgjan Alioski’s deep cross on the left was roughly wide

A superb block from Ezri Konsa, throwing himself in front of Rodrigo’s hard shot, saw Leeds close in soon after.On the resulting corner, Alioski sent another effort straight to Emiliano Martinez

At the other end, Ross Barkley stabbed Illan Meslier’s palm with a shot from outside the penalty area

Leeds enjoyed the best of the first 25 minutes, but Villa took their chances and then had the best chances in the game so far

Ollie Watkins’ low cross on the right side of the penalty area escaped Trezeguet in the center and found Jack Grealish at the far post The Villa captain got good contact with his left foot as he spun the ball towards the goal, but Luke Ayling’s was on the goal line to make the clearance

Leeds survived a penalty alert late in the first half when Grealish suffered a challenge from Helder Costa just inside the zone Referee Paul Tierney dismissed the appeals and his decision was supported by a VAR check

A quick break from Jack Harrison saw him put Bamford on goal with a nice pass but Konsa and Tyrone Mings did just enough to put the striker aside and he missed his shot wide

Grealish got involved again early in the second half, almost opening the scoring with a sensational solo run The 25-year-old recovered the ball deep in his own half before launching into a run in forward, on the challenges of three Leeds players on their way to the penalty area

He took his time making his way to the right side but with defenders sliding all around him, but when he finally got his shot it was straight on Meslier

From the resulting corner, Meslier then produced an acrobatic stop to swing Konsa’s volley to the crossbar after beating Ayling on the ball. This turned out to be crucial

Despite the start of Villa’s second half, it was Leeds who took the lead after 55 minutes Alioski and Harrison launched a counterattack, the latter choosing Rodrigo’s run into the zone His effort was initially repelled by Martinez, but Bamford hid to return the free ball to the far post

Leeds had been in the lead since coming in front and doubled their lead shortly after it was Bamford again, shooting into the top corner of the net just outside the area with infallible precision

Bamford completed his hat trick after 74 minutes, showing good feet to work a meter of space inside the penalty area before looping the ball past Martinez

Leeds were creating chances at an alarming rate and Bamford had an opportunity for a fourth but buckled his head in the goalkeeper’s arms, before Pablo Hernandez launched a savage shot at the crossbar when he had time and space to do much better

Watins had a sight of the goal in the stoppage time for a consolation goal for Villa but he dragged his effort away
