Ian Taylor reacts on Twitter to Aston Villa's latest defeat; highlights crippling problem

Aston Villa

Aston Villa suffered yet another defeat on Sunday afternoon.

On Sunday, Aston Villa lost for the 20th time in the Premier League this season, as Tottenham Hotspur coasted past them with a 2-0 victory.

Two goals from England international Harry Kane handed Spurs all three points at Villa Park, pushing themselves closer to top spot, whilst pushing Villa closer to the relegation zone.

Remi Garde's men have now lost six of the last seven games, and with only thee Premier League wins all season, relegation is a formality for Villa, especially after their disappointing display against Spurs.

Villa in fact started quite well, and looked bright and energetic, but much like the 4-0 defeat to Manchester City earlier in the month, the minute they went behind, the team simply fell apart and didn't even look like mounting any sort of fightback.

Villa's so-called fight against relegation has been half-hearted at best, and their inability to come from behind or simply keep themselves in games when they do fall a goal down has been crippling this season, and they must improve in that regard in the Championship, or they could fall even further down the footballing pyramid.

Club hero Ian Taylor - who not only grew up supporting Villa but also hit 43 goals in 296 appearances for his hometown club - noted on Twitter that Villa simply aren't showing any fight in games or in the relegation fight as a whole, suggesting that its simply too easy to beat them right now; a sorry state of affairs for one of England's biggest clubs.

Whether it's Garde or somebody else in charge next season, Villa must learn to deal with going behind in games, and Taylor's frustrations mirror those of other supporters, who can't believe how easy it is to beat Villa once you open the scoring against them.
