Aston Villa’s Conor Hourihane scored his third goal in as many games for loan club Swansea City with a wonderful goal in a top of the table clash against Norwich.
The former Barnsley midfielder struck a powerful drive into the bottom corner from 25 yards to put the Championship side in command against their promotion rivals.
It kept up a remarkable scoring record against the Canaries for whom Hourihane has been a scourge due to a record of eight games, seven goals and three assists.
And Villa fans were quick to have their say once the video of his strike started to emerge on social media and we took a look what they had to say on Twitter.

“Ross was injured and the gaffer played Jacob Ramsey ahead of me, the young lad from the academy which I was very disappointed with. That was probably the moment where I thought, ‘I’m going to struggle here a little bit moving forward’.
“Ever since then I haven’t played at all with Jacob in front of me.
“Listen, Jacob’s a very good player. A very young player with a lot of talent but I thought it was a harsh decision on myself at the time. The gaffer actually came out afterwards and said it was probably harsh to leave me out.
“The lads went onto win the game so his decision was probably justified but that was the trigger for me to think I might be in a little bit of trouble here.”
