Aston Villa fans offer verdicts on Trezeguet following impressive cameo vs Man City

There will be a lot of criticism aimed at Aston Villa’s players and management, which will be deserved after the shocking performance that saw them beaten 6-1 by Manchester City.

Riyad Mahrez’s brace, Sergio Aguero’s hat-trick and Gabriel Jesus’ goal are what secured the three points for Pep Guardiola’s side, but Villa certainly helped them out, with various mistakes such as those from Danny Drinkwater and Kortney Hause.

However, one man who seems to be escaping a lot of the fans’ criticism is Trezeguet, who replaced Conor Hourihane in the 71st minute.

His biggest contribution was winning the penalty that led to Anwar El Ghazi’s goal, when he was fouled by Ilkay Gundogan – an event that was noteworthy, even if it was equally futile in the grand scheme of things.

The Egypt international’s spark can also be shown by the fact that he completed one key pass and two dribbles, as well as letting off a shot that was blocked.

It may not have done much to the embarrassing scoreline, but Trezeguet’s contribution did get some appreciation from Villa fans.

Questions were raised regarding the 25-year-old’s omission from the starting XI.

Trezeguet has only started two of Villa’s last seven Premier League games, including the City one, with the feeling being that he should be getting much more action than that.

With an important game against Brighton & Hove Albion on the horizon, it will be interesting to see whether Trezeguet is given the nod this time around after his latest showing.

Meanwhile, Villa fans have shown excitement about the prospect of one man leaving the club.
