As Aston Villa’s match with Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday approached the final minutes, it looked as though the Villans were about to drop points in their quest for promotion.
However, Dean Smith’s men scored twice in injury time to win 3-1 as last gasp goals from Albert Adomah and Tammy Abraham sealed victory.
It was a game full of key moments as Steven Fletcher missed a penalty for the hosts whilst left-back Neil Taylor made a fabulous tackle to deny the same man from having a shot on goal.
It was a remarkable right footed tackle from the Welshman and fans took to Twitter after seeing a GIF of the challenge to praise the player.

Supporters of the Midlands club were quick to pick on some key points as one suggested he was an unjustified scapegoat this term. Another claimed they couldn’t believe it was the same player from the 2017/18 campaign.
One fan meanwhile focused on the entirety of the defence, suggesting that Taylor had been near faultless since Tyrone Mings had arrived.
Here’s the best of the reaction.
Can’t believe it’s the same guy from last season and the start of this. Excellent yesterday ??????

Since the brilliant Mings has come in, alongside the impressive Hause, Neils been near faultless. Frankly defence a
lot better without Hutton.

Has played well recently. Think he lost his confidence after Bruce preferred Hutton at LB. Maybe he had a point to prove yesterday along with a few others #utv

Unjustified scapegoat for some, not exactly been a bad player for us. Does the job quietly
