Aston Villa defender Joleon Lescott's goal given to Norwich's Timm Klose

Aston Villa defender Joleon Lescott has had a goal taken away from him for the second time this season after the Premier League's Goal Accreditation Panel awarded his strike against Norwich to Timm Klose.

Lescott, 33, appeared to score the winner in the 1-0 win against Crystal Palace last month, only for the panel to rule that the game had in fact been settled by a Wayne Hennessy own goal.

And the Premier League has now announced that the centre-back's opener in the 2-0 victory against Norwich on Saturday was actually an own goal by Canaries defender Klose.

Lescott thought he had scored against Norwich after getting on the end of Carles Gil's free-kick, but the ball only went in after a deflection off Klose.

Despite missing out on two goals, the former Manchester City man does still have one strike to his name for Aston Villa after scoring in December's 1-1 draw at Southampton.

The victory over Norwich last weekend left Villa eight points adrift of safety at the bottom of the Premier League table.
