Aston Villa midfielder Conor Hourihane has escaped punishment despite appearing to punch Leeds’ Mateusz Klich during Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Elland Road.

The game exploded in the second half after the hosts carried on playing, and took the lead, with Villa’s Jonathan Kodjia injured in the centre circle.

That prompted an angry reaction from the visitors, with Hourihane seen grabbing goalscorer Klich, whilst several other incidents broke out involving players and coaches from both sides.

Eventually it was settled as Marcelo Bielsa insisted his side allow Villa to equalise from the resulting kick-off.

However, footage has since emerged appearing to show the Irishman punching Klich too. Yet, journalist Phil Hay revealed that a panel insisted it didn’t warrant a red card when reviewing the incident today.

Several other moments from the game were checked, with Patrick Bamford set to serve a two-game ban for his role in Anwar El Ghazi’s red card.

Whilst Leeds fans acknowledge that was the right call, they aren’t happy with how Hourihane has avoided a ban.
