Dean Smith’s Aston Villa have lost against Manchester City this evening.

Norwich City coach Grant Holt has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to Aston Villa’s defeat to Manchester City this evening.

Villa have suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Premier League rivals City at Wembley Stadium in London in the final of the EFL Cup.

Sergio Aguero put Pep Guardiola’s side in the lead, and Rodri doubled the advantage on the half-hour mark.

Mbwana Samatta halved the deficit for the Villans in the 41st minute, and although Dean Smith’s side tried hard in the second half, they could not find an equaliser.
