Aston Villa produced a stunning performance to beat Norwich City 5-1 last weekend, and a key player for them in that game was their striker Wesley.
The Brazilian was outstanding at Carrow Road, scoring two goals and providing an assist, as well as winning three aerial duels, making four clearances, two interceptions, making one successful tackle and playing one key pass (via WhoScored).
It means that the former Club Brugge man has now netted four times in just eight appearances having settled into life in the Premier League pretty well so far.
As a result of the 22-year-old’s fantastic display against the Canaries, he was named as one of the players in FIFA 20’s Team of the Week alongside the likes of Paulo Dybala, Ciro Immobile and Marco Verratti.
Obviously, plenty of Aston Villa fans play the game themselves, and here is how some of them responded to the news that Wesley had made the FIFA 20 Team of the Week…
