Many Aston Villa fans were fuming after watching the performance of Bertrand Traore in the defeat to Manchester City.
Dean Smith’s side looked to be competing very well against Pep Guardiola’s men, but sadly, they couldn’t hold out for a draw as they conceded two goals in the last eleven minutes.
Traore picked up a 6.8 rating as he put in quite an average performance. He only managed to touch the ball 23 times, made no key passes and lost four ground duels and four aerial duels (SofaScore). He also lost possession ten times.
It is understandable to see fans show their frustrations at Traore. In his 14 Premier League games this season, the attacker has scored three and assisted two (Transfermarkt), and he will need to improve on this if he wants to keep his place in the starting eleven.
Here is what Villa fans said about Traore’s performance either during or after the game:
“Traore got to come off. He looks exhausted.”
“Hmm. If AEG is fit, I’d hook Traore here. He’s had one brilliant moment but he’s struggling here“
“Traore is so frustrating“
“Traore needs to come off, looks knackered. Foden wanted it more then“
“Traore really is far too inconsistent”
“Please please please get Traore off!!!”
