Aston Villa Twitter account slam Burnley with sarcastic post about their playing style during Turf Moor clash
ASTON VILLA slammed Burnley's tough playing style in a controversial tweet.
James Tarkowski's fierce first-half challenge smashed dangerously into the heel of Villa scorer Ollie Watkins during the Clarets' thrilling 3-2 comeback win.
And Villa's official Twitter account responded sarcastically with: "We're at Turf Moor now so obviously our striker has been on the end of a dreadful challenge. Tarkowski goes into the book."
Villa quickly deleted the post.
But when Ben Mee equalised, one fan tweeted a screengrab of the tweet along with the message: "I couldn’t tell you the last time I was this happy to see a Burnley goal."
Clarets' centre-back Tarkowski, 28, is still wanted by Leicester, having won two England caps.
And his tackle on Watkins was not the only flashpoint in a heated Premier League contest.
Burnley boss Sean Dyche seemed furious when Villa full-back Matty Cash tumbled over in a challenge with Erik Pieters.
Referee Paul Tierney warned Dyche – while Cash seemed angry at the apparent suggestion he had dived.

Jack Grealish brilliantly put Villa in front.
But Dwight McNeil's long-ranger somehow went in for a leveller and three minutes later Chris Wood's header completed Burnley's stunning victory.
