Aston Villa: These fans showed their support for Jack Grealish

Aston Villa’s disallowed goal against Crystal Palace was definitely the most contentious decision in the Premier League over the weekend.

There has been plenty of discussion about the call, with Jermaine Jenas going as far as deeming it “one of the worst decisions I have ever seen” on Match of the Day, via The Birmingham Mail.

Jack Grealish has given his thoughts on what happened during the incident via his personal Twitter page:

It was the Villa captain who was at the centre of the drama, as it was he who went down when he played the pass which Henri Lansbury finished off, for what would have been a late equaliser.

Kevin Friend decided to disallow the goal because he deemed Jack Grealish to have dived, blowing the whistle before the ball had crossed the line, meaning the incident couldn’t be reviewed by VAR.

Grealish and many others involved with Villa feel hard-done-by after having a point taken away from their grip, as Dean Smith was quoted by The Telegraph as saying: “The officials are human and they make mistakes, but they have to be better than they were today, in my opinion.”

A selection of Twitter reaction to the decision, including posts from frustrated Aston Villa fans, can be seen below:
