Aston Villa felt hard done by to suffer a defeat to Crystal Palace at the weekend.

Players and fans were infuriated by a decision to deny Villa a goal after VAR ruled there was a dive in the build up.

Centre-back Bjorn Engels commented on this in a message he sent to Villa fans on Twitter yesterday.

Villa now have a two week break before the next game, a home match against West Ham.

So far they have only one win, and getting a result against the Hammers could be important with an away trip to Arsenal to follow.

 

This means at present Dean Smith's side sit down in 18th place.

Villa were unlucky against Palace, and in the opening game against Spurs, which they led for much of the contest.

But Engels and co can't afford to feel sorry for themselves and must put the VAR controversy behind them.
