Many Aston Villa fans are reacting to the reason as to why Ezri Konsa was not available to play against Burnley on Thursday night.
According to @ChrisFordTV, and tweeted out by @villareport, centre-back Konsa missed out due to an illness. With recent events, the Villa supporters are understandably worried about what he might have.
If it is just a normal illness like a cold, they will be hoping that he can return for the derby against West Bromwich Albion at the weekend. He has been a vital asset for the club this season, playing in all ten Premier League games before the Burnley match, and averaging 4.7 clearances a game (WhoScored).
He has been a part of five clean sheets, but he has also been an asset in attack as he has picked up two goals this season (Transfermarkt). Therefore if he is out for a long period, he will definitely be a big miss, especially as the fixtures are very congested over the Christmas period.
Here is what Villa fans said following the news on Konsa:
Bit worried about this. Hause has barely played this season.

Could’ve been worse. Hopefully he’ll be ok for Sunday. He’ll be well rested, too.

Hope he’s alright and it ain’t the dreaded C19
