Aston Villa cut it fine to take a 3-2 win over Wigan Athletic at Villa Park as a last minute winner sent Villa Park wild after a tumulutous game this afternoon.
The winner, courtesy of Birkir Bjarnason, was probably just about deserved for the home side, who had taken the lead before falling behing to goals from Nick Powell and Callum Connolly.
However, an own goal got Steve Bruce’s men back into the game, before Bjarnason’s late show sealed the points and made it two wins from two for the Midlanders.
Villa have had an uneasy summer overall and the positive start on the pitch is something which will put to bed a frustrating transfer window which saw the club have to wait until the very last week in order to add new players to the ranks.
Following the game, owner Tony Xia took to Twitter to praise his team.

Xia’s tweet however appears to have not gone down too well, with many fans still frustrated with his leadership.
Here at FLW, we took a look at just what Villa fans were saying to Xia following the win over Wigan today…
