Tyrone Mings Asks Aston Villa Fans To Apologise After Anwar El Ghazi Shuts Down Social Media Account

Tyrone Mings Asks Aston Villa Fans To Apologise After Anwar El Ghazi Shuts Down Social Media Account

Aston Villa ace Tyrone Mings has hit out at the club's fans for their online abuse of Anwar El Ghazi, after his late winner in the 1-0 Midlands Derby victory over Wolves.

El Ghazi scored from the penalty spot after a fiercely contested match against their local rivals that saw nine players receive yellow cards and both teams down to ten men by the end of 90 minutes.

Goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez continued his fine form with seven saves to keep the Villans in the game, before El Ghazi kept his nerve to score when Nelson Semedo brought down John McGinn in the fourth minute of injury time.

This came after Douglas Luiz received a second yellow late on to leave Dean Smith's side with ten men. Joao Moutinho was also sent off for a second yellow just moments after the goal, evening things up.

In the aftermath of the win, Mings reminded supporters of their earlier behaviour towards El Ghazi - which had led to the Dutchman suspending his social media after criticism following Villa's defeat to Stoke City in the Carabao Cup.

Aston Villa themselves supported Mings, with teammate Ezri Konsa also joining the calls for fans to treat the players more fairly.

Mings' defence of El Ghazi caps a turnaround in relations between the pair, after they were seen to argue and but heads on the pitch last season.

Villa's win over Wolves kept them in the top half after defeats to Brighton, West Ham, Southampton, and Leeds had left them with just one victory in their last five games before Friday.

They will hope to build on the three points against Burnley, West Brom, and Crystal Palace, before a tough run of fixtures where they face Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham, and Everton consecutively in the Premier League - with an FA Cup tie against Liverpool part-way through.
