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.
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.
GOAL ACCREDITATION PANEL Aston Villa's 1st goal v Norwich was in fact an own goal (Timm Klose) and has not been credited to Joleon Lescott- Premier League (@premierleague) February 11, 2016
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.
