Gabby Agbonlahor did not miss the chance to poke fun at Leeds’ shock FA Cup exit to Crawley.

Marcelo Bielsa’s were beaten 3-0 by League Two club Crawley in the third round of the competition on Sunday.

Bielsa will not have many selection headaches when Leeds return to Premier League action

Agbonlahor has felt the wrath of Leeds supporters since dubbing the club and Bielsa ‘a myth’ in October.

The Whites’ official Twitter account even mocked Agbonlahor after they thrashed his former club Aston Villa earlier this season.

But today was the talkSPORT pundit’s turn to troll Leeds as they were outplayed by a Crawley team that had reality TV star Mark Wright come off the bench in second-half stoppage time.

With Leeds 3-0 down in the 76th minute, Agbonlahor tweeted a picture of himself pointing at his TV, which showed the scoreline along with a disgruntled-looking Bielsa.

And at full-time, Agbonlahor jovially took aim at his fellow talkSPORT colleague Danny Mills, who used to play for Leeds.

He tweeted: “What happened Danny?? Let me guess you played the best football and was so exciting to watch…”

Leeds have been heavily praised by several football pundits, including Manchester United legend Gary Neville, for their attacking style of play.

Despite sitting in 12th place in the Premier League table, only West Brom (39) have conceded more goals than Leeds (33) this season.

Last week, Agbonlahor claimed Bielsa’s ‘naive’ tactics were stopping Leeds from breaking into the top four.

He told talkSPORT: “I do enjoy watching Leeds and the attacking football they play, but it is a bit naive.”

Agbonlahor continued: “I’ve got no negative thoughts on Leeds, I’ve been over the moon with Leeds, they’re the most exciting team in the league to play.

“But when you’re playing against the top teams and you lose the ball in these areas, you’re going to get punished – these guys don’t miss.

“When you’re playing against West Brom, Sheffield United and Burnley you can play like that because they’re more likely to miss chances.

“But when you’re playing against top teams, change it up a bit, have a plan B.

“Leeds could be in the top four by now if they changed their tactics against the top clubs!”
