Aston Villa staged a dramatic late recovery coming from 3-0 down against Sheffield United to grab a draw and stop the Blades taking top spot in the Championship.
A Billy Sharp hat-trick had looked like sending Chris Wilder’s side top, before goals from Tyrone Mings, Tammy Abraham and substitute Andre Green grabbed a point for Dean Smith’s side at the death.
So how should Villa fans be feeling after this ‘late-show’ to grab a point against the Blades?
“They can take real optimism out of their come back.
“Not many teams would come back from 3-0 down against a team like Sheffield United.
“But, they really shouldn’t have been in that position in the first place, they really need to sort their defence out.”
“As impressive as the comeback was, I’d be worried.
“Dean Smith’s side were awful for 80 minutes and didn’t deserve a point at all.
“They again lacked something without Jack Grealish, but defensively there are still massive problems that money hasn’t solved.”
“They should be feeling they were let off the hook with a late Sheffield United collapse.
“Villa were poor for the vast majority of the game and barring Dean Henderson’s late calamity showing; they’d have lost that at a canter.
“It could be the catalyst to kick them into gear for the final batch of games that remain in the season.”
