Villa fans react on Twitter to Ashley Westwood's performance against City

Aston Villa once again lost heavily as they bid to avoid Premier League relegation.

Aston Villa’s awful season continued as they were defeated 4-0 by Manchester City on Saturday.

Remi Garde’s side managed to keep the Blues at bay until the 48th minute to suggest a repeat of the 0-0 draw in the reverse fixture could be on the cards.

However, City had other ideas and a brace from Sergio Aguero and a goal apiece from Yaya Toure and Raheem Sterling ensured Manuel Pellegrini’s men got back to winning ways.

The result leaves bottom club Villa nine points below the safety line with just 27 points left to play for and the way Garde’s men capitulate so regularly suggests there is little chance they can turn things around now.

Midfielder Ashley Westwood was making his 28th appearance of the campaign on Saturday but he was unable to make a positive impact on proceedings and prompted plenty of discussion on social media both during and after the match.

After the game we took to Twitter to see what Villa fans thought of Westwood’s latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
