Aston Villa fans were delighted with Wesley’s performance as he scored twice in the 5-1 thumping of Norwich City on Saturday.
The striker was signed from Club Brugge in the summer for a club-record fee that eclipsed the £18m fee paid for Darren Bent.
However, he struggled to find the net in his first seven games, scoring just twice, with the goals coming against Everton and Arsenal.
He endured a particularly poor outing against Burnley last week, failing to even take a shot at goal throughout his time on the pitch, per WhoScored.
The Brazilian scored with a neat finish in the 14th minute and then doubled his side’s tally with a simple tap-in.
Things did not go completely to plan, however, as Wesley also missed a penalty but fans were impressed with his display as Dean Smith’s men recorded a major victory.
Take a look at the best of the reaction below!
What a win, what a performance. So fluent in attack since Targett has came in! Gutted to not keep a clean sheet because Mings was outstanding especially at 1-0, countless vital blocks. Glad for Wesley aswell, way too soon to write off! #AVFC

Wesley absolute class today, hopefully keep some of our fickle fans off his back for atleast a week #avfc

Wesley today was a constant menace. Grealish probably had his best game back in the Premier League. Nakamba = Marvelous. Mings is a wall. Heaton was unlucky to concede. The win was coming, we've been playing nice football, that was an overdue reward. #UTV #AVFC @AVFCOfficial

Buzzing with the result today! Wesley answered his critics, me being one of them, in the best possible way and should do his confidence the world of good.

Nakamba, Grealish, and Wesley get the match balls from me. Excellent shift from #AVFC today.

#avfc goals from different areas, loved the finish from Hourihane & the confidence he showed demanding the ball off Targett. Wesley will be lifted, belief he can succeed at this level will increase & hopefully he’ll kick on from here. Luiz’s goal the icing on the cake, beauty.
