Jonathan Kodjia's late penalty rescued a point for Aston Villa and took two away from Leeds United after an entertaining second half of the two sides' Championship encounter at Villa Park on Thursday.
Pontus Jansson's header put Leeds 1-0 up shortly after half-time before the Swede struck the crossbar with a sweet half-volley moments later.

Villa rallied, though, and were quite literally handed a lifeline when the ball was adjudged to have touched Liam Cooper's arm inside the box, and Kodjia made him pay.

Cooper was a surprise inclusion for Leeds - who were without Kyle Bartley to injury - making only his second Championship start since August. And, according to many Whites fans on Twitter, there is a good reason for that.
Here is what they have had to say about the Yorkshireman's performance:
Is there seriously one person out there that feels safe when Cooper is in the defence absolutely useless prat #lufc— Mr Glassalfempty (@DRobinson92) 29 December 2016
Cooper is a liability and a freekick waiting to happen! #lufc— Leedsfan (@Leedsfan75) 29 December 2016
Should of won that!!! That would be cooper done for me #lufc— Danny Stoakes (@DStoakes) 29 December 2016
2 pts lost by Cooper to go with the 10-15 he cost us last season with Bellusci. #lufc— Matt (@MWJS82) 29 December 2016
that's why cooper doesn't start though, at times he just does stupid things #lufc— Simmo (@1simmo1) 29 December 2016
Give me an unfit Bartley over a fully fit Cooper anytime. #lufc— Peter C Johnson (@epictrader) 29 December 2016
Don't want to see Cooper on the start again this season, unless Bartley and J-Pon has been kidnapped by ISIS. Even then... #lufc— JOHN MARK (@JohnNanai) 29 December 2016
Cooper for me played decent, but we need more options that we know are reliable, not sure whether Cooper is good enough at the moment #LUFC— ' (@PontusJxnsson) 30 December 2016
Such a shame Cooper played so well aswell. Decent point but deserved to win that! #lufc— Nick Carlin (@Nicklufc801) 29 December 2016
And finally, cooper didn't put a foot wrong all night, these things happen. #lufc— Gary Devonport (@DingleburtDev) 29 December 2016
Jansson, Sacko & others fluffed chances and people are slagging off Cooper because his hand was dragged up by the villa player! Mental #lufc— a fan. not super. (@deancore) 29 December 2016
Despite Kodjia's goal, the result saw Leeds climb a place to fourth, above Huddersfield Town, albeit having played a game more than their local rivals, while Villa leapfrog Barnsley into ninth.
Does Cooper deserve another chance at Elland Road?
