It was St. Patrick’s Day for Birmingham after Patrick Bamford’s hat-trick for Leeds United on Aston Villa (0-3) at the opening of the sixth day of the Premier League. Ultra domineering throughout the meeting, Marcelo Bielsa’s men had to wait for the return of the locker room and a mess in the Villans’ area to open the scoring through his number 9, the starting point of a masterful show from the British.
10 minutes later, Bamford controlled near the surface to then find the top corner of Emiliano Martinez (67 ‘) before releasing, still from the left, in the middle of three players a few minutes later (74’). By bringing his total to six goals this season, Patrick Bamford has above all allowed Leeds United to climb temporarily to the Premier League podium, at 3e place, two points behind Aston Villa. The Villans miss the opportunity to take the lead in the championship by conceding a first defeat this season.
