Some Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Billy Sharp for Sheffield United against Aston Villa.

Sharp featured for United in their Championship game against Villa away from home at Villa Park on Friday evening.

The 33-year-old former Southampton striker was superb for the Blades, as he scored a hat-trick inside 62 minutes.

 

Villa, though, staged a late comeback and scored three goals in the final 10 minutes, as the match finished in a 3-3 draw.

Some Leeds fans were following the match, and they were impressed with the performance of Sharp - who has made 25 starts and four substitute appearances in the Championship for United so far this season, scoring 22 goals and providing two assists, according to WhoScored.

Sharp played for Leeds during the 2014-15 season before returning to United for his third spell with the Blades.

The former Southampton striker struggled to make an impact during his time at Leeds, who sold the striker to Yorkshire rivals United in the summer of 2015 for a transfer fee reported by Sky Sports to be worth £500,000.
