Didn’t put a foot wrong: Aston Villa fans buzzing with Neil Taylor

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.

The 30-year-old has made 25 Championship appearances this term, claiming two assists in that time.

Here’s the best of the reaction.
