Aston Villa fans react to Micah Richards and Adama Traore's Watford performances

Aston Villa

Aston Villa lost 3-2 to Watford on Saturday afternoon.

Aston Villa's struggles continue after a 3-2 home defeat to Watford on Saturday afternoon, meaning they have now conceded seven goals in their last two games.

Odion Ighalo put Watford in front before a towering Micah Richards header brought Villa level. Alan Hutton's own goal gave Watford the lead again, and former Villa youngster Troy Deeney haunted his former club with the third goal to effectively end the game as a contest, though Jordan Ayew did pull a late goal back for Remi Garde's men.

Garde will be increasingly concerned that his Villa side simply aren't good enough, especially defensively, and having won just once this season, Villa remain rooted to the foot of the Premier League table.

These are dark times for Villa, but their supporters did find two players to rave about after the game, as fans took to Twitter to praise defender Richards and winger Adama Traore.

Richards is one of the few defenders that deserves praise this season, and he showed his passion for the club with a remarkable celebration after his goal against Watford.

Unsurprisingly, those actions went down well with Villa fans, who took to Twitter in order to hail Richards, and state that if every Villa player showed the passion he does, then they wouldn't be in such a precarious situation.

Villa supporters also praised winger Adama Traore, who played just 22 minutes having come on as a second half substitute.

The former Barcelona man, who joined Villa over the summer, hasn't had much of an impact so far this season, but Villa fans are desperate to see him play a more regular role after a promising cameo against Watford, where he displayed his pace and dribbling ability - even if his final ball wasn't always up to scratch.

Here are some of the reactions from Villa fans after Richards and Traore's performances against Watford on Saturday afternoon...
