JOHN MCGINN was subbed in Aston Villa’s clash with Everton amid concern from fans he was “concussed”.
The Scotland international appeared to take a knock to the face midway through the first-half as Villa welcomed Everton to Villa Park.
McGinn played on before being replaced by Zimbabwe’s Marvelous Nakamba on 39 minutes with the score at 0-0.
Fans took to social media to question whether the 26-year-old should have been taken off sooner, with some claiming he was “concussed”.
User ‘Dion_Leadbetter’ wrote on Twitter: “Not sure how it’s taken Villa so long to take John McGinn off there, obviously not there with the concussion”
‘RJAK67’ added: “John McGinn has genuinely just played 30 odd minutes of football concussed.”
And ‘Daniel_Baines04’ added: “Why on earth was John McGinn allowed to continue? He should’ve been taken off immediately.”
Fans from both sides wished McGinn well after he started brightly, going close with a curling strike from 25 yards out.
