Aston Villa trolled on social as manager gets it wrong. Again.

After the excitement of yesterday, the first game of the day was a damp squib settled by a lovely team goal. Tottenham weren’t fluid and Sunderland were much improved, unlucky even as they hit the bar twice. Talk, though, turned back to yesterday as there just wasn’t enough on the pitch to help us out.

But then came the second game of the day, and we turned our attention to our TV screens again. Aston Villa looked comfortable against Leicester, they raced into a two goal lead after a smart finish from Jack Grealish and beautiful curling shot from Carles Gil, easily Villa’s best player. Gil was silky on the ball and definitely the one composed Villa player in the opposition half. So when Sherwood subbed him off we knew trouble was coming.

And then it came. Leicester huffed and puffed, were given a goal after a lovely cameo appearance from goal-line technology, equalised through Jamie Vardy and then won the game with a brave goal from Nathan Dyer on his debut just before he was flattened by the onrushing goalkeeper.

There were some great moments on social media to accompany it all, and here are some of the best

Up until Leicester’s comeback this was telly to doze-off to with a belly full of Yorkshire pud

This is easily the most monstrous thing I’ve seen all season

An escalation sending Sherwood to new levels of self-loathing and despair
