Aston Villa’s Neil Taylor slammed by Wales fans after horror showing

Premiership Picks

After arriving from Swansea in the 2017 January transfer window, Neil Taylor has firmly established as part of Dean Smith’s first team at Aston Villa.

The 30-year-old has proven himself to be a reliable figure over the years at left-back, and has started every minute of Villa’s opening four Premier League games this season.

Taylor has also been in and around the Wales set-up for many a year, but had a particularly forgettable outing on Friday night.

After seeing his side take the lead, the full-back’s lackadaisical first-touch allowed Azerbaijan to counter through the middle of the park and eventually score a shock equaliser.

Despite Gareth Bale’s late winner, Wales fans took to Twitter to criticise Taylor for his role in allowing the away side to get back into the game in the second-half.

Many supporters suggested he had a “shocker”, and pointed to the fact he lost possession seven times over the course of the 80 minutes he was on the pitch.

Some fans even revealed their frustrations about seeing him play at such a high level, and insisted the “majority of park players who play left-back could reach his level”.

Check out some of the disgruntled reaction of Wales fans below:
