On-loan Everton winger Yannick Bolasie hasn’t had the best of times since moving to Aston Villa on a season-long deal and his performances so far had left him open to plenty of criticism from fans who expected better given what we saw of the player during his time at Crystal Palace.

Whether it was confidence, fitness or simply sharpness following the long-term injury he had at Goodison Park, new head coach Dean Smith made no secret of wanting him to work harder on the training pitch and he was notably dropped for the defeat to Norwich City.

Smith also stated he’d be back for Queens Park Rangers last Friday evening and he was, as a replacement for Ahmed Elmohamady in the 62nd minute of what became a 1-0 loss and back to back defeats.

With an uplift in the performance and some confusion as to how we came out of the game with nothing to show for our efforts, Bolasie’s impact did attract praise from fans on social media.

He can clearly improve further, but that was at least more of what fans were expecting when we secured his services.
