Aston Villa fans predict Di Matteo's fate on Twitter after Brentford draw
By Harvey Byrne
Aston Villa fans have made the prediction on Twitter that current manager Roberto Di Matteo won’t last a lot longer after a 1-1 draw against Brentford on Wednesday evening.
Villa took the lead through a Jonathan Kodjia strike with 20 minutes on the clock, but defender John Egan cancelled out the goal on the 88th minute.
The stalemate at Villa Park added to a poor start in the Championship for the Midlands side.
Di Matteo has only lead his victory to one victory since taking charge, with four draws and two defeats coming in his opening seven games.
Villa fans took to Twitter with many criticising the boss for not being able to see out a match.

Can see Di Matteo being getting sacked soon. So much money spent and no sign of improvement. Morale so low. #AVFC

Our form at the moment is genuinely relegation form, have to sort it out quickly. Can't see di matteo lasting more than another month #avfc

The draw has seen Villa placed in 17th after their poor start.
Many fans went into the season with optimism following their relegation after a reshuffle from top to bottom at the club.
Chinese businessman Tony Xia took over the club from Randy Lerner, appointing Di Matteo and bringing in nine new players.
The additions include Kodjia, Albert Adomah, Ross McCormack and James Chester, but many fans will be wondering what more they have to do to see some success on the pitch.
