Aston Villa fans express sympathy for Mbwana Samatta after Leicester defeat

Dean Smith’s men missed the chance to move out of the relegation zone at the King Power Stadium. They were beaten 4-0, with the Foxes scoring three times after the hour mark.

Samatta has made a promising start to life at Villa. And the fans believe that he could make an impact during the coming months – but they are imploring his teammates to give him something to work with.

Here is what some of the supporters made of Samatta’s display…
