Aston Villa: Fans react as Ross Barkley goes off injured against Brighton

Aston Villa: Fans react as Ross Barkley goes off injured against Brighton - Aston Villa News

Many Aston Villa fans watched on in disbelief as they saw midfielder Ross Barkley limp off injured in the 2-1 loss against Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Chelsea loanee went off in the first five minutes of the Premier League match and Bertrand Traore came on to replace him.

He has had a great start for the club – in five Premier League appearances he has managed two goals and one assist. Villa have definitely lost a huge threat if his problem is serious, as he has averaged 3.4 shots, three key passes and 2.2 successful dribbles per game (WhoScored).

They were not short of opportunities in the match though, as they had 15 shots, and his replacement Traore was involved in the equaliser as he assisted Ezri Konza’s goal (SofaScore). However, they might have converted more than one of these opportunities if Barkley was involved.

Despite the good impact of Traore, the England international proved to be a big miss as they still failed to pick up the three points. This and the the heavily congested fixture list coming up in December could create a big problem for Dean Smith.
