Tony Xia, the Aston Villa owner, took to social networking site Twitter, to express his reaction after the match. He tweeted:

Conor Hourihane was quick to respond to Xia’s tweet as well:
Apologies I got lost in the moment 🤣 Big win 💪🏻

Sean Clare gave the home side an early lead when he finished smartly from Atdhe Nuhiu’s lay-off. Soon after Villa equalised through January signing Lewis Grabban, who has now scored in back to back games.
Lucas Joao scored to give the Owls a 2-1 lead just before the break.
Villa responded strongly after the break. Glenn Whelan restored parity in the 61st minute. Conor Hourihane made it 3-2 with a powerful strike, and Robert Snodgrass added an injury-time penalty to complete a dramatic comeback for the visitors.
The victory was very crucial for the Villans who needed to bounce back after their recent disappointing results against Fulham and Preston.
