Aston Villa fans destroy ‘pointless’ Conor Hourihane after West Brom defeat

Aston Villa suffered a 2-0 defeat to West Brom in the Championship – and many of their supporters on Twitter singled out midfielder Conor Hourihane for major criticism for his contribution.

Dean Smith’s side suffered another setback in the league, as West Brom earned three points thanks to late first-half goals from Hal Robson-Kanu and Jay Rodriguez.

They are now without a victory in four league games and a late charge towards the play-offs seems slim right now.

A selection of Villa fans decided to aim frustration towards Hourihane for his display and he was substituted off the pitch after 61 minutes.

The 28-year-old central midfielder is an ever-present in the starting XI and has scored five goals plus supplied nine assists all season.

But he wasn’t at the races against West Brom and offered very little in the centre of the park, with his lack of physicality an issue for him.

He’s become a target for the club’s fans in recent weeks for some inconsistent displays and the weekend was the final straw with some of them.

Here are some of the Villa fans criticising Hourihane and there were several hoping for him to be axed from the starting XI:
