Gabby Agbonlahor has described Leeds United as a ‘myth’ in wake of their defeat to Wolves last night in the Premier League.

Leeds were beaten 1-0 at Elland Road last night, with Raul Jimenez’s goal the difference.

It was a tough result to take for Leeds and a second defeat of the season.

The eyes of Agbonlahor were on Elland Road, with the talkSPORT pundit making an interesting observation.

As we all know, Agbonlahor is Aston Villa through and through. They are Friday night’s opponents and, currently, the only side with a 100% record in the Premier League.

The former Villa striker looks determined to spice up Friday night’s clash and on the back of Leeds’ defeat last night he was very vocal on Twitter.

Agbonlahor described Leeds as a ‘myth’ and questioned whether pundits would now stop piling the praise on Marcelo Bielsa.

Bielsa’s style of play and Leeds’ adaptation to life in the Premier League has been a major talking point of 2020/21 so far.

Agbonlahor is on the wind-up and he’s caught a few Leeds fans here. Naturally, he’s looking to spark debate and get supporters nibbling.

Given he’s of a Villa persuasion, he will be confident heading into Friday. Dean Smith’s side have enjoyed a strong start and going back to Villa Park they will be favourites.

However, this tweet might just give Leeds that little bit more motivation to get a result in the Second City.

Despite losing last night, Leeds weren’t miles off and peppered Wolves for 45 minutes.

On another night, it could’ve been a much different game.
