Aston Villa fans have completely turned on manager Steven Gerrard, with videos emerging of chants against him in the away end at Fulham.
Villa lost 3-0 to Marco Silva's men at Craven Cottage, with Harrison Reed and Aleksandar Mitrovic on target and Tyrone Mings putting through his own net in a miserable evening.
The pressure continues to mount on under-fire Gerrard and his own supporters were singing brutal chants against him and calling for his dismissal this evening.
Footage has emerged of Villa fans singing "We want Gerrard out" and the infamous chant from rivals about Gerrard's infamous slip to allow Demba Ba to score back in 2014.
A 3-0 loss to Fulham. That one all but confirmed Steven Gerrard’s departure from Aston Villa.— Robin Mumford (@RobinMumford17) October 20, 2022
Tough night for the manager, whose own fans were singing the infamous ‘Slippy G’ chant against him… #AVFC
Among others, “Steven Gerrard…get out of our club” and "You're getting sacked in the morning" were also sung by a large group of supporters who have ran out of patience.
Gerrard did not go over to the fans as he walked across the pitch and down the tunnel.
Villa had midfielder Douglas Luiz sent off for a headbutt on Mitrovic with the score at 1-0 and the visitors were second-best throughout the 90 minutes.
The result means they are lurching in 17th place, only ahead of Midlands rivals Wolves because they have scored more goals.

Leicester City, managed by Gerrard's former boss Brendan Rodgers, are just one point behind Villa after their 2-0 win over Leeds United.
On Sunday, after losing 2-0 at home to Chelsea, Gerrard confirmed he was well aware of chants against him.
Asked about the negative reaction continuing on Wednesday, he told Prime Video: “I’m a fighter. I will never quit, in football or in life. It's tough, I'm a man and I accept and I understand it.
"I can feel their frustration. I'm frustrated with them. It was a tough night for me personally."
The Telegraph say Gerrard's job is hanging by a thread after another dismal result, with Mauricio Pochettino a managerial target.
