Ian Taylor has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to Aston Villa’s draw with Leeds United on Sunday afternoon.

Villa have played out a 1-1 Leeds away from home at Elland Road in the Championship.

Following a goalless first half, Mateusz Klich scored for the Whites under controversial circumstances on 72 minutes, after Tyler Roberts kept the ball in play despite appearing to be ready to put it out for a throw-in following an injury to Jonathan Kodjia.

 

Subsequently, there were confrontations between the two sets of players, and Villa’s Anwar El Ghazi was sent off.

Leeds allowed Villa to score from kickoff, with Albert Adomah tucking the ball in.

Cameras appeared to show that El Ghazi was wrongly dismissed for an alleged elbow on Leeds striker Patrick Bamford, who seemed to have simulated his fall.

Villa legend Taylor was following the match, and he has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to the final result.

Villa legend Paul McGrath has also taken to Twitter to give his reaction to the draw, and has written: "So proud to be an Aston Villa Supporter , and its you players that make us feel that way , no matter what happens , you brought back the pride . Tk you Dean #Respect. #UTV."
