Football is a game driven by passion. We see it in the stands every week and it's usually mirrored on the pitch too. 

When there's so much to play for, emotions can overcome even the most professional of footballers and that appeared to happen in the Championship on Saturday. 

Leeds United, who are chasing promotion to the Premier League, were in action in yesterday's late kickoff, hosting Sheffield Wednesday at Elland Road. 

It was a game that Marcelo Bielsa's side were expected to win comfortably but things were pretty tense inside the ground when the two teams went in level at half-time. 

That nervy atmosphere turned into one of excitement in the 65th minute though, when Jack Harrison swept his shot past Keiren Westwood and into the net. 

It was the only goal of the game as Leeds held on to their lead and three more points mean they are now just three behind Norwich City, who top the table. 

Interestingly, Harrison's finish hasn't been the biggest talking point to come from the game.

Instead, it was what happened during the celebrations that caught the attention of some fans on social media.

While the Leeds players were congratulating each other for taking the lead, Pontus Jansson was spotted kissing teammate Ezgjan Alioski on the cheek in the background. 

Nothing out of the ordinary there, we see it happen quite often on the football pitch. But it was Alioski's reaction that was rather bizarre. 

The Macedonian winger was spotted going ballistic at his teammate for the little show of affection. He glares at Jansson through gritted teeth before shoving him in the back. Check it out below. 

What makes the moment even more amusing is that it seems to take a moment for Alioski to realise what's happened before he kicks off. 

Next time, Jansson might think twice about celebrating a goal by planting a kiss on his teammate's cheek.
