David Preece makes an amusing comment about Aston Villa defence on Twitter

Aston Villa

Aston Villa suffered a 2-0 defeat to Arsenal at Villa Park in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Former Sunderland prospect David Preece has taken to social networking site Twitter to mock Aston Villa’s defence.

The 39-year-old goalkeeper, who is now on the books of Lincoln City, made an amusing comment about the Villa backline during their 2-0 defeat to Arsenal at Villa Park in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Villa have struggled defensively all season, and the players failed to step up their game against Arsenal on Sunday.

Remi Garde’s side were sloppy at the back, and their performance against the Gunners left much to be desired.

While Arsenal are a force to be reckoned with and have some fantastic attacking players, the way the Villa players defended and made mistakes was hugely disappointing.

With Villa not scoring enough goals, they need to be better defensively if they are to stand any chance of staving off relegation from the Premier League to the Championship at the end of the season.
