Many Aston Villa fans have been left slamming the display of Douglas Luiz despite their 2-1 win at home to Leicester City in the Premier League.
The Brazilian was particularly poor in the first half of the game, and although he improved in the second, some members of the Villa Park faithful still did not think that his overall performance was good enough.
Should Aston Villa start Luiz?
Luiz lost out on two of his duels, and also failed to block any shots or make any key passes from midfield, while he lost possession of the ball on no fewer than on 22 separate occasions in the match, the most out of any of his teammates on the pitch (SofaScore).
Nonetheless, with Morgan Sanson back fit and on the bench, he will most certainly have to perform better if he is to keep his place in the starting eleven under Steven Gerrard.

These AVFC supporters slammed his performance on Twitter, with a couple even going as far as to claim that he was ‘awful’:
“You could put a throw pillow on for Dougie and there’d be no drop in quality”
“Dougie’s having a stinker”
“Can anyone tell me what position Luiz is playing??”
“Get Luiz off half time, passing has been woeful and offers nothing defensively.”
“Luiz off and Sanson on pls. Awful half from Luiz”
“Buendia, Luiz & Watkins have been awful this half”
