Ian Taylor has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to Aston Villa’s draw with Leeds United on Sunday afternoon.
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.
Taylor has praised Villa defenders Tyrone Mings (on loan from Bournemouth) and Axel Tuanzebe (on loan from Manchester United) for their performance for the Villans, and has lauded Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa for allowing the Villans to score from kickoff.
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."
Proud of the lads. Some spirit in this team! @OfficialTM_3 colossal at the back with Tuanzebe, but great team effort. Fair play to Bielsa for giving us the goal. Bamford though...... Red card definitely has to be rescinded! Embarrassing... #UTV— Ian Taylor (@IanTaylor7) April 28, 2019
