A number of Aston Villa supporters hit out at midfielder Marvelous Nakamba on social media for his display against Manchester City on Wednesday.
Villa fell to a 2-1 defeat to Pep Guardiola’s men despite taking the lead in the first minute through John McGinn.
Phil Foden and Rodri netted for the visitors, with John Stones and Matty Cash receiving reds cards at Villa Park.
However, it was Nakamba’s performance that had a number of Villa fans talking online.
Who has been your Villa player of the season?
Nakamba made way just after the hour mark for Ross Barkley, though, and, statistically, was Villa’s second-worst starter behind Cash, who of course picked up two quick bookings to make the Villans’ job that much harder.
As per WhoScored, Nakamba ended with a 5.98/10 match rating. He failed to make a tackle or interception all evening and attempted just 18 passes, which was 11 less than his own goalkeeper Emi Martinez.
Villa fans react
This is what these Villa supporters had to say about Nakamba, with one describing his display as ‘awful’.
“Nakamba is having a SHOCKER“
“Don’t wanna hear anyone calling for Nakamba to start again, he’s bloody awful! #avfc“
“Nakamba, Luiz, Traore are a disgrace“
“Nakamba isn’t with it tonight, not tracking anyone“
“Nakamba having a nice sleep there, hopefully he can use the energy he’s saved during the rest of the half.“
“Nakamba to blame. Looks like he’s running in lead boots“
