Aston Villa: Fans react to Wesley comparison with Benteke, Carew and Angel

Aston Villa: Fans react to Wesley comparison with Benteke, Carew and Angel - Aston Villa

Lots of Aston Villa fans have been reacting to some statistics that suggest Wesley’s poor start to life in the Midlands may not be a sign of what’s to come.

When you spend £22m on a centre-forward they are expected to fire in the goals to keep you in the Premier League.

Unfortunately for Wesley and Villa, that simply hasn’t happened so far, as the 23 year-old has found the net just four times in 16 appearances.

Fans have slammed the former Club Brugge man for his performances in recent times – he earned just a 6.39 out of 10 rating from Whoscored in the 4-1 defeat to Leicester on Sunday.

However, some stats from @TheVillaVision show he may yet find the form that tempted the club to spend all that money on him.

The Villa fan page shows that Wesley’s scoring record in his opening 16 matches is surprisingly similar to some very popular figures at the club.

The most recent of which is of course Christian Benteke, who slammed in 49 goals in 101 games in a Villa shirt.

Fans are split on the matter, and you can find some of the best responses down below…
