Aston Villa have struggled to ensure consistency in the current campaign, which has already forced them into making a managerial change.
The Villains will be desperate to enjoy success under Dean Smith at Villa Park after witnessing their downfall during Steve Bruce’s reign. But, things haven’t exactly gone to plan in recent times, with a play-off spot slipping away.
Bruce struggled to get the best out of a number of players this season and Smith is also encountering some problems, so things aren’t exactly looking bright at this moment in time.
Indeed, the Midlands club would find themselves in a far better position than they’re currently in if one particular player wasn’t struggling for form.
With that in mind, this Aston Villa ace will surely have shocked fans this season…
The attacking midfielder has been the go-to man for Aston Villa over the past couple of seasons or so, and played a huge part in their push for promotion via the play-offs last season under Steve Bruce.
However, the Englishman just hasn’t been able to live up to the hype in the current campaign, with just one goal and two assists to his name at this moment in time. This has been a huge shock for supporters as he has always been a reliable figure for the Villains, but this season looks to be an exception.
