Patrick Bamford hammered for theatrics that led to Anwar El Ghazi red card
He went down like a sack of potatoes
Patrick Bamford has been hammered by Aston Villa fans and neutrals nationwide for the theatrical manner in which he fell to the ground amid the chaos at Elland Road this afternoon, getting Anwar El Ghazi sent off in the process.
El Ghazi will now be suspended for the upcoming play-off fixtures that Villa are set to play in, despite not giving more than a flick to Bamford, who had his arms around the Villa midfielder.
Unsurprisingly, Bamford has been taking pelters on social media from all angles, with many calling him a disgrace to the sport and the club.

Some have even said Bamford should be sanctioned for cheating. As unlikely as that may be, El Ghazi's red card could well be overturned.
