Aston Villa fans slate Danny Drinkwater’s debut display

For teams towards the bottom of the Premier League table, playing against Manchester City can be a tough task at the best of times.

Therefore, Aston Villa will have been keen to ensure that they didn’t give the reigning champions any gifts early on.

It turns out that Villa gave them two that were wrapped up thanks to their debutant Danny Drinkwater.

Having been easily beaten by his former teammate Riyad Mahrez for City’s first, the 29-year-old then gave the ball away inside of his own box, which led to the Algerian getting his second.

This was a player who had only featured in one Premier League game this season, and quite frankly, the rust from his time on the bench was fully on show in his early performance.

One fan demanded that Villa “terminate Drinkwater’s loan”, while another asked who made the decision to bring him in, suggesting “they need sacking”.

Marvelous Nakamba has not been the most popular of figures at Villa Park recently, as signified by the fact that he and Douglas Luiz were slated for their performances against Leicester City.

However, fans felt that Drinkwater was making the Zimbabwean look good, with one urging for him to be brought on.

Should Drinkwater be dropped against Brighton?

Yes

Yes

No

No

His poor performance can be encapsulated by his WhoScored rating of 4.8, which looks even worse when compared to the 6.3 that Nakamba got.

Meanwhile, one of Villa’s prospective signings could act as a roadblock to one of their exciting talents.
