Twitter Reacts to Manchester City's Draw Away to Aston Villa

Manchester City were held to a draw at Aston Villa on Saturday evening and we take a look at what went down on Twitter

Another goal for Erling Haaland wasn't enough for the defending champions to take all three points back to the Etihad Stadium with Leon Bailey equalizing in the 74th minute for the home side. 

The point sees Aston Villa climb out of the bottom three and continues City's unbeaten start to the season leaving them just one point behind early pacesetters Arsenal. 

Players and fans were quick to share their thoughts on Twitter, which has become something of a tradition after a game. 

Erling Haaland was keen to point out it was a battling point with all focus now shifting to the Champions League which gets underway on Tuesday Night against Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium. 

Nathan Ake echoed the sentiment about getting ready for the game in Sevilla. 

Fans were replying to the club's post-match tweets and there was a pretty similar theme with many, just like Eugene O'Carroll, questioning why Julian Alvarez wasn't given a chance. 

Josh Pearson took to praising Pep Guardiola's comments following the game. 

John Heatherton was also glad to hear Guardiola's comments and back them up by naming players he thought were part of the reason for the words used in the post-match press conference 

City HQ were keen to point out that even though it wasn't a victory, the side is ahead of where they were last season.
