Aston Villa fans slam Westwood on Twitter, think he'll fail in the Championship

The 26-year-old midfielder hasn't impressed all season and Villa fans were underwhelmed again by his performance v Manchester United.

The resonance of Aston Villa's relegation has been well documented. It's simply astounding that a club of that size and stature is going down.

And yet it's no surprise - and something that seems to have been coming for a number of years now.

However, focus now duly turns to which of Villa's current squad can survive - and hopefully thrive - in the Championship.

Villa only lost 1-0 at Manchester United. When you consider they've lost 6-0 at home, a one-goal loss at Old Trafford certainly isn't too bad.

But several performances still underwhelmed the Aston Villa fans. As ever, Ashley Westwood was one of them. And there's a very real fear from supporters that the 26-year-old midfielder just won't be up to it even in the Championship.

The midfielder has often been criticised for not actually offering anything. He turns up, he plays - but not much else...

Here's how Aston Villa fans reacted on Twitter to his display v United on Saturday:
