Anwar El Ghazi should be dropped to Aston Villa bench

Aston Villa managed to record a stunning 3-3 draw at home to Sheffield United on Friday night in the Championship.

The hosts were trailing by a three-goal lead going into the latter stages of the match, but a Tyrone Mings goal on the 82nd minute sparked a memorable comeback.

Tammy Abraham netted a second just moments later, before substitute Andre Green scored the equaliser in the 94th minute.

Dean Smith’s side showed their fantastic attitude to produce an unlikely comeback, but they had not been at the races for the majority of the contest.

There were a number of players that dipped below their usual level and Anwar El Ghazi once again flopped.

El Ghazi completed 90 minutes against Sheffield United, but it was a complete no-show from him.


The 23-year-old wide man showed very little creativity going forward and his crosses into the box were poor.

He appears to have lost the confidence to take on full-backs and Smith should drop him to the bench, with Green certainly worthy of a starting position.

El Ghazi has just four goals all season and his form has dipped since he netted a brace against West Brom on 7 December.

The Dutchman is on a season-long loan spell at Villa from Lille and needs pulling out of the firing line when his form is so patchy.
