Sheffield United have been promoted to the Premier League

GUESS WHO'S BACK IN THE BIG TIME

Sheffield United have been promoted to the Premier League after Leeds United and Aston Villa played out a controversial draw at Elland Road.

Sheffield United had already relegated Ipswich Town at Bramall Lane 2-0 on Saturday afternoon.

Scott Hogan opened the scoring after just 24 minutes before Jack O'Connell made it 2-0 in the second half to confirm the Blades' return to top flight football after a 12 year wait.


The Leeds game that confirmed the Blades' promotion exploded into life when the hosts scored a controversial goal while Jonathan Kodjia was on the floor injured.

Villa were incensed by Leeds' refusal to kick the ball out and started a mass brawl on the pitch, during which Anwar El Ghazi was sent off to 'hitting' Patrick Bamford, who got widely criticised for his theatrics.

John Terry and Marcelo Bielsa then squared up at the touchline but order was restored when the Leeds boss instructed his players to allow Villa to level the scoring straight from kick off.
