Aston Villa fans on Twitter have been critical of Neil Taylor after his side suffered a 3-2 defeat against Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.

Dean Smith’s side took the lead in the first-half through John McGinn, with the home team then being reduced to ten men when Ainsley Maitland-Niles was shown a second yellow for a rash challenge on Taylor.

Despite having the extra man, Unai Emery’s side levelled the scores through a Nicholas Pepe penalty before Villa hit their opponents back straight after through Wesley.

But Villa then went onto concede a further two goals, with left-back Taylor getting some stick for the second goal which his side conceded.

Callum Chambers netted from Taylor’s side of the pitch, with Mings and the Welshman both at fault for not dealing with the danger.

But it is fair to say that some Villa fans on Twitter want Taylor dropped for the next match, as they would like to see Matt Targett selected in his place.

The summer signing has only featured once for Villa and that was an EFL Cup game against Crewe last month when he had to go off injured before the break.

Villa take on Brighton in the League Cup on Tuesday night before they host Sean Dyche’s Burnley in the Premier League at the weekend.

Here is a selection of Villa fans reacting to Taylor’s performance:
