A number of Aston Villa fans are concerned that their team could struggle in the Premier League this season due to a lack of cutting edge in the final third of the field.
Villa’s goalless draw with West Ham United on Monday night means that the team have now only netted four times in their five Premier League games this term.
Wesley, Douglas Luiz, Anwar El Ghazi and John McGinn have scored for Dean Smith’s side in the top flight during the 2019/20 campaign.
There has not been much threat from elsewhere, though, and Villa are currently 17th in the Premier League table – level on points with 18th-placed Newcastle United.
It is a long, long season with plenty of points still up for grabs.

However, following Monday’s 0-0 with West Ham, a number of Villa supporters admitted that they were concerned by a perceived lack of options and quality in attack.

Villa don’t have enough up top for me. It’s a real concern. #AVFC

Failure to get another attacking player might end up costing us.

Jota is clueless and predictable…el ghazi ineffective

I think our front 3 looked weak. Jota is a brilliant passer of the ball but every other aspect of his game doesn’t seem up to scratch.

It’s already very obvious we need to buy or loan in Jan
It’s possibly the weakest attack in the prem.

Needed 1 more striker in the summer for either competition for wesley or support for wesley

Exactly what i think also.

Have to agree. Grealish has to play further up the field. Jota is too slow. Wes not firing not even sure it will come with time
