Aston Villa: Fans impressed with Wesley’s performance against Liverpool

Several Aston Villa fans were left impressed with the performance of Brazilian striker Wesley in their recent fixture against Liverpool.

Has Wesley looked worth the money?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The 22-year-old was slated for his previous display against Manchester City, but many supporters felt he was much improved against Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Villa lost the game 2-1 following two late goals from Andy Robertson and Sadio Mane, and Wesley failed to score in the game (BBC Sport).

However, fans felt that his overall contribution was worthy of praise, suggesting that he gave centre-back duo Dejan Lovren and Virgil van Dijk plenty to think about throughout the game.

Wesley is a new signing at Villa Park, having joined from Belgian outfit Club Brugge for what was a club-record transfer fee at the time (BBC Sport).

He has scored four times in his first 11 games for the club, two of which came in their recent 5-1 victory against Norwich City (Transfermarkt).

Interestingly, according to the statistics, the Brazilian didn’t play that well against Liverpool. Indeed, he didn’t have a shot on goal, played zero key passes and had five unsuccessful touches, finishing with a WhoScored rating of 6.15.

However, despite those stats, several fans were happy with his display and quite a few pointed towards the fact that he pressed the Reds’ defence well. Here is what some had to say about the striker on Twitter…
