Aston Villa: Axel Tuanzebe under fire from some fans vs Wolves

Aston Villa: Axel Tuanzebe under fire from some fans vs Wolves -Aston Villa News

Many Aston Villa fans slammed Axel Tuanzebe during their Premier League clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday afternoon.

Villa were looking to return to winning ways against their Midlands rivals after falling to a 2-1 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur prior to the international break. Wolves, meanwhile, were gunning for a third straight win, having beaten Southampton away and Newcastle United at home.

Dean Smith made two changes from the team which lost in north London, with Tuanzebe replacing Kortney Hause in the back three and Emiliano Buendia coming in for Jacob Ramsey in midfield.

How did Tuanzebe play?

The Manchester United loanee earned a SofaScore rating of 6.3, the lowest in the Aston Villa side. He lost both of his duels, misplaced half of his attempted long passes and made an error leading to a Wolves shot. At one point in the first half, Adama Traore brushed past him with ease, with Emi Martinez ultimately bailing his defender out with a good save.

As Tuanzebe struggled, these Villa fans took to Twitter to slam his performance this afternoon, with one insisting that he “looks awkward”.

“Still don’t really get the Tuanzebe signing, purely sentimental from Smith, he would only have come as with first team promises and he is leagues behind Konsa!! and if he was signed to play three at the back then it makes signing two wide men and Ings strange”

“Might get shot down here….but Hause is as good or better than Tuanzebe in my opinion. Axel just looks awkward with the ball at his feet to me. Always looks like he’s gonna give it away.”
