Marco Silvestri posts photo from Leeds United's Christmas Party alongside team-mates

Leeds United celebrated beating Preston with their Christmas Party on Sunday night.

Leeds United beat Preston North End 1-0 at Elland Road on Sunday - and then celebrated after the game with their Christmas Party.

After North End goalkeeper Jordan Pickford had been sent off for handling the ball outside his area, Leeds managed to snatch the winning goal, with Alan Browne diverting a Stuart Dallas cross in to his own net.

With three wins from the last four games, Leeds certainly have cause to celebrate - and that's just what the players did during their Christmas party after the game.

Goalkeeper Marco Silvestri, who made key saves from Neil Kilkenny, Will Keane and Joe Garner during Leeds' win over Preston, took to Twitter to post a video from the Christmas party.

The image above shows the goalkeeper seemingly signing alongside Mirco Antenucci, Tommaso Bianchi, Sol Bamba and Souleymane Doukara, all of whom arrived at Leeds from Italian clubs almost 18 months ago.

Spirits are clearly high at Elland Road, and the players certainly deserved the chance to celebrate after a fine run of form, with festivities at a high in Silvestri's photo.

Managers Steve Evans will also be celebrating over the Christmas period, but will also be looking towards the clash with Nottingham Forest on December 27th, as he searches for another win, with Leeds just five points away from the play-off places.
