It would be fair to say that the Aston Villa fans were not best pleased with what they saw from Jota in Monday night’s Premier League clash with West Ham United.
The 28-year-old, who moved to Villa Park from Birmingham City during the summer, was handed his third straight league start against West Ham having come off the bench against Tottenham Hotspur and Bournemouth earlier this season.
Jota was once again deployed on the right for Dean Smith’s side, but his statistics for the night do not exactly make brilliant reading.

Indeed, according to WhoScored, the attacker managed just one shot, one dribble and made just 15 passes before being replaced in the 66th minute.

And a number of the club’s fans were really not pleased with Jota’s outing against Manuel Pellegrini’s side – as shown by the tweets below:
Again disagree. Jota was absolutely shocking

I do think Jota was very poor also and justified being taken off. Jack made too many wayward passes for me.

Right back from the game.
We looked awful going forward.
Jota and El Ghazi were particularly bad this evening.
Wesley too isolated but should have scored in the first half.
Mings, Engels and Nakamba were fantastic though.

Woeful going forward tonight! ? Doesn’t bode well looking at our upcoming fixtures. Jota and El Ghazi both look out of their depth, Wesley far too isolated. #AVFC

An absolutely woeful performance, I thought. Bluster and no class. No precision and total indecision. Grealish must be more decisive and not be afraid to shoot. Jota is not a PL player. Very poor. A very long season ahead. #AVFC

Jota has a really wonderful beard, but has been very poor tonight. Every move breaks down because of him losing possession. #Avfc

Jota has been awful, needs to be brought off. Just cuts inside everytime and loses it. So predictable. #AVFC
