Aston Villa fans criticise Wesley’s performance in 4-1 home defeat against Leicester

Villa struggled in attack as Brendan Rodgers’ side won with relative ease.

Aston Villa were beaten 4-1 at home by a rampant Leicester side at Villa Park yesterday as Jamie Vardy continued his hot streak.

The English striker scored twice as the Foxes won the battle of the Midlands clubs, with Kelechi Iheanacho and Jonny Evans adding the other strikes.

Villa started brightly enough and perhaps the course of the game would have been different if Anwar El Ghazi had scored early on, when he hit the bar with the goal gaping.

But as the game wore on, the hosts got tired and started giving away silly fouls and losing their shape, with goalscorer Jack Grealish the only player making things happen all afternoon.

Vardy’s livewire performance was in stark contrast to that of Wesley, Villa’s big-money summer signing to replace the goals of departed loanee Tammy Abraham, who has torn up the Premier League this season.

He was unable to hold the ball up, or offer a goal threat and many Villa fans on Twitter criticised the Brazilian international in the aftermath of the match.

A reliable goalscorer is imperative to sides battling relegation – and Villa are one of them – and Wesley has shown little evidence so far that he can be that man.
