A number of Aston Villa fans were unimpressed with winger Anwar El Ghazi in the 2-1 win over Tottenham on Wednesday evening.
Dean Smith recorded his 50th win as Villa boss, with a Sergio Reguilon own goal and an Ollie Watkins winner silencing 10,000 Tottenham fans.
Who has been your Villa player of the season?
However, it was El Ghazi’s display that had plenty of Villa supporters talking on social media, and not for the right reasons.
He was actually Villa’s worst-rated performer, as per SofaScore, with a match rating of 6.5/10. The Dutch international was coming up against Japhet Tanganga and lost 13 duels in total, while also losing possession 16 times.
El Ghazi also missed a great chance to put Villa 3-1 up after being set up by club captain Jack Grealish.
