Well our little run of good results has ended, how that managed to happen is just a mystery to me.
I have no idea what happened today that meant we didn't leave Villa Park with three points, we played well, we created chances and Villa could not handle us.
The team were playing well and when we went ahead it was an overdue well deserved goal, then Villa out of nowhere equalised and stunned us, the goal shouldn't of stood due to an offside but that was just the first bit of luck Villa got.
We were back in front six minutes later and we were able to breathe a sigh of relief, surely we were going to go on and secure the game, it wasn't to be. Villa got their second piece of luck when the referee decided to award a free kick because Weimann decided to jump over Nastasic's leg, the poor refereeing was followed by a good free kick that managed to beat Joe Hart who was for some reason, stood behind his wall.
Surely we were not going to walk away with anything else but three points after totally dominating this game? Actually not only were we not going to take three points, we didn't even hold on for a draw. Villa's miraculous victory was complete when Guzan pumped a ball up field only for our defenders to get into a mess and let Weimann run on to it and toe poke it past the on rushing Joe Hart.
This was unbelievable today, how Villa managed to win is just crazy, saying that although it cant be denied that we gave Villa a footballing lesson, I am sure Villa fans would be quick to point out that we did make mistakes. Joe Hart's positioning was poor for the free kick and then obviously our defence totally made a mess to let Weimann through to score, ok so it was still remarkable that Villa won but if we had defended better in these two instances, maybe they wouldn't have.
We are five points off top spot now and while I am not overly worried on the back of this freak result today, we can't fall any further behind, we need to overhaul the deficit as soon as possible if we are to win the title.
A tiny set back today but lets not dwell on it because we have an exciting and a big game against Bayern Munich to look forward to on Wednesday.
