Villan57 gives his player ratings for Aston Villa 2-3 v Leeds United. See also our 100% Match Thread here…
I’d better do the player ratings now before I forget what I saw. Better side won but we just didn’t play like we can as a team or as individuals today.
Nyland: 5 let in 3 goals, never makes “the” save does he. Bye Bye
Elmo:4 Cost us the game with feeble defending
Bree: 5 First game in ages and out of position so we’ll let him off
Chester: 5 Struggled against the lively Leeds attackers.
Hutton: 4 Ran ragged by their number 10, he’s not a left back is he.
Whelan: 5 Got in a few blocks but he’s not the answer is he. Too slow
McGinn: 7 Played on his own in midfield, he’s very consistent.
Hourihane:5 Scored a good goal with his 4th touch of the ball on 17 minutes. “Chased ” shadows for the rest of the game.
Kodj:6 Wrestled well and set up Hourihanes goal. Never covered Elmo
Abraham: 6 Took his goal well but lacked support.
Bolasie: 5 Left Hutton totally exposed and should have been subbed for Albert, not Hogan.
Hogan: 2 What on earth was Dean thinking to put this clown on. Gave it away every time. Makes Gabby look like Messi, please be gone in Jan.
Barney: 6 Why was this lad on the bench and not starting.
El Ghazi: 5 Crowded out, he has the skill but no support.
Smith : 5 That midfield didn’t work against Stoke and he tried the same again and failed again, Leeds aren’t Stoke. Poor today allowed Hutton to be run ragged and did nothing to counter it.
