Leeds United fans on Twitter are slamming Middlesbrough's Daniel Ayala.
But there was an unsavoury incident in the first half when Ayala appeared to elbow Leeds' Patrick Bamford in a form of obstruction which went unnoticed by the referee.
However, fans of the West Yorkshire side spotted it and have slammed the Spanish centre-back on Twitter:
Here's their reaction:

Ayala is a dirtbird— paul kelly (@paulie_lufc) November 30, 2019
That’s not like Ayala to be elbowing someone in the face.— Richard Benson (@richjbenson) November 30, 2019
If Bamf retaliates for That elbow on Ayala he’ll be off— Tom Sparke @ Thought Bubble - Pride Hall (@sparkeface) November 30, 2019
Why is Ayala allowed to do whatever he wants against us— Billy McGlennon (@chuckielufc) November 30, 2019
Ayala tried to elbow Bamford twice.— James (@JamesLUFC) November 30, 2019
Danke Ayala constantly looks like he's been kicked in the balls #lufc— James Howson (@BigJimmy_V) November 30, 2019
It was a bit bold by Ayala in fairness, but the same regularly happens in every division up and down the country on a weekly basis.
Plus, karma came back to bite the former Liverpool defender after Mateusz Klich's first goal deflected off him.
If that wasn't bad enough, the defeat also did nothing to help Middlesbrough's survival hopes, with Jonathan Woodgate's side only one point above the drop zone.
