Aston Villa midfielder McGinn: Watkins no cheat

John McGinn insists Aston Villa teammate Ollie Watkins is 'no cheat'.

The Englishman was shown his second yellow card for simulation in the loss to Manchester United on Tuesday.

"I think it was more me and the other lads claiming for a penalty," said McGinn. "From where I was looking I thought there was contact but the referee decides it is a second yellow which I think is harsh.

"Anyone who knows Ollie's character knows he is not that kind of player. He thinks there is going to be a coming together so he has to protect himself."
