London - Sheffield United's promotion to the Premier League was confirmed on Sunday after Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa allowed Aston Villa to score in a remarkable 1-1 draw at Elland Road.
Leeds fell five points behind the Blades with just one game remaining after the hosts stood aside to let Albert Adomah run from kick-off and equalise after Leeds took the lead through Mateusz Klich, while Villa's Jonathan Kodjia was down injured.
Bielsa had been confronted by Villa assistant boss John Terry as players on the field and both benches clashed following Klich's controversial opener.
Villa's Anwar El Ghazi was sent-off in the melee as the visitors' club record 10-game winning streak came to an end.
"The facts are those which everyone could see," Bielsa said.
"What happened happened and we behaved as we behaved. That's all I can say about something which is very clear."
