English Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers suffered a damaging blow to their automatic promotion hopes after a heavy 4-1 defeat away to Aston Villa.
Still in pole position to go straight up, a victory over the Villans would have all but assured the achievement, but they were stopped in their tracks with their heaviest loss of the season so far.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side looked well off the pace against Steve Bruce’s outfit, especially in the second half when they completely collapsed and conceded three goals.
Fans were left fuming with the performance and had particular criticism for striker Leo Bonatini after a laboured display in attack.
After a red hot start to the season, producing a period of form that resulted in 12 goals and six assists, the Brazilian now hasn’t scored since December and fans have lost patience with him.
Many don’t want to see him play again before the end of the season, believing he isn’t going to have his loan from Saudi club Al-Hilal made permanent.
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Bonatini knows he's not going to get a contract. I feel like he's downed tools. He shouldn't be in the matchday squad again this season imho. #wwfc

Bonatini's confidence is absolutely shot. He looks like a war veteran with post trumatic stress disorder that's been asked to go out onto the battlefield one last time. If he had half the arrogance Grealish has I'd fancy him because his hold up / technical play is good. #wwfc

Villa deserved it. Batth and Bonatini were dreadful. Why take Jota and Cav off and keep him on?! But bounce back on Tues get us back on track 💪🏼#wwfc

Question is, what damaging material does Bonatini have on Nuno?
He's been totally anonymous for 2 months now #wwfc

If bonatini makes the next squad it would be criminal #wwfc

Villa by far the better team but seriously won’t be happy if Batth or Bonatini start any more games this season. They are weak links #WWFC

Bonatini at the end of the season is going straight back to Saudi Arabia no doubt about it #WWFC
