Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to Ashley Westwood performance v Stoke City

The midfielder was poor against Stoke City today.

Aston Villa's painful season continued this evening as they were defeated 2-1 by Stoke City at The Britannia Stadium.

The result is essentially meaningless, as no Villa fan truly holds any hope of survival after a terrible campaign.

Villa sit well off the pace at the foot of the Premier League table and despite the scoreline today were once again played off the park in The Potteries.

As per usual the Villa players got plenty of stick on Twitter after the game.

But one man who got it in the neck worst was Ashley Westwood.

The central midfielder has remained a first-team regular throughout the campaign but would admit himself he has not had the best of seasons.

An honest and hard-working player he has unfortunately been found wanting this term and today he was again torn to ribbons in the heart of Villa's midfield.

He gave away the penalty for Stoke's opening goal and had little to no positive impact on the game.

Villa fans were ruthless in their online criticism and here is some of the best (clean) reaction from the Villa faithful on Twitter...
