Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to Ashley Westwood's performance v Liverpool

The Aston Villa boss is facing calls from supporters to drop the midfielder.

After seven Premier League games, Aston Villa sit 18th in the table, having won just one match - and not won in six since their season opener against newly-promoted Bournemouth.

It's not an improvement on Paul Lambert's days. So far, it's just more of the same from Tim Sherwood.

There have been positives, of course, and a number of performers did well as Liverpool beat Villa 3-2 at Anfield - with the home side being put under pressure after being two goals up on two separate occasions.

Rudy Gestede, Jordan Amavi and more all impressed the Aston Villa faithful against Liverpool. But one man didn't: Ashley Westwood.

Indeed, on Twitter after the game, there were resounding calls from supporters for Sherwood to drop the 25-year-old midfielder, with many questioning exactly what he offers when on the pitch.

Next up for Villa are Premier League clashes against Stoke City and Chelsea. Both will no doubt be vital for their manager - and many fans won't want to see Westwood in either of them, it seems. Here's how Aston Villa supporters reacted on Twitter to the midfield man's display v Liverpool...
