Gabriel Agbonlahor attacked Leeds United fans for their actions against Arsenal at Elland Road on Saturday night.

Leeds were beaten 4-1 by team Mikel Arteta, West Yorkshire.

But towards the end of the match, home fans started to applaud their players’ efforts despite the score.

Marcelo Bielsa had a list of abnormal injuries to contend with and could only include nine senior players in the squad, the rest being young Thorp Arch.

Under these circumstances, only a heavy defeat was on the agenda for Whites and their supporters nonetheless appreciated the player industry.

But Agbonlahor says he doesn’t understand why Leeds fans – who saw a 7-0 loss to Manchester City last week – are happy to be ‘beaten’.

He told talkSPORT: “I just don’t get it. The atmosphere on the ground, you applaud! You are beaten every week. These are the Sunday League scores. Eleven goals in two games. This is not how we play in the Premier League.

It’s unclear when Agbonlahor is intentionally trying to be inflammatory towards Leeds fans.

Let’s face it, the two don’t have a strong relationship and probably never will.

But on this occasion, it looks like he’s trolling them.

The reason United fans weren’t mad at Arsenal was the context.

As mentioned, Bielsa had to name a 15-year-old to the squad – Archie Gray – because there was literally no one else around.

Leeds fans are familiar with Bielsa’s struggles to put together a squad and their applause reflects that.
