Managers Reaction 

Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard: “I think we should have been playing against 10 men from a very early stage of this game. I think that is a clear red card, probably one of the clearest I have seen this season. That decision went against us. The PGMOL said there was not enough force for that to be a red card. I heard it and I was 60 yards away. He has run into the incident from 10 yards, he has pulled his elbow back and he has smashed him in the face. I mean, have you got to break someone’s cheek or make them go off the pitch for it to be a red card? Everyone knows that is a red card. That is a fact.”

Burnley boss Mike Jackson: “He is special, he is so big and he dominates that goal and we just feel we are not going to concede. He was outstanding. That is why he is there and all season he has kept us in games.”
