Aston Villa centre-half James Chester was certainly a topic of debate following the 1-1 draw with Reading at Villa Park at the weekend.

It was a largely comfortable game for us, although the visitors did have chances of their own which led to Orjan Nyland impressing between the sticks, but having conceded the late penalty that they levelled from, fans who took to social media were certainly torn.

Chester took a fair bit of flack for going to ground and giving the referee a decision, even though I think with multiple replays, it was an extremely harsh decision but Mile Jedinak, Steve Bruce and others became targets as that moment was poured over.

As you can see from the comments, and there were plenty more, Chester does receive some praise as others get it in the neck, but interesting the way some seem to have already picked this year’s scapegoats regardless of the actual performance they put in.
