ASTON VILLA fans were met by baton-wielding police in a violent clash after a last-minute equaliser was ruled out at Crystal Palace.
Henri Lansbury scored to make it 1-1 – but referee Kevin Friend disallowed the goal because he thought Jack Grealish dived in the build up.
Grealish charged towards Crystal Palace’s box in the 96th minute of the clash at Selhurst Park.
The 23-year-old crashed to the ground as he attempted to burst away from Wilfried Zaha and past Gary Gary Cahill.
His pass reached the feet of Lansbury, who slotted the ball into the far corner of the net to level the scoring.
But Friend blew his whistle, ruled out the goal and controversially booked for Grealish for diving.
The Villa captain failed to keep his cool and had to be held back by Eagles defender Gary Cahill and team-mate Tyrone Mings.
