Aston Villa suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of West Bromwich Albion on Saturday; a result that saw Paul Lambert's side slip to 12th place in the Premier League table.
Villa had slightly more possession on the day but with just two shots on target during the encounter they were ultimately found wanting.
With the scores level Kieran Richardson was dismissed for the visitors, prompting Lambert into a change of tactics. At half-time Charles N'Zogbia was replaced by Fabian Delph but it was West Brom who ultimately secured the win courtesy of Craig Gardner.
During his time on the pitch N'Zogbia had a passing accuracy of 92 per cent, but it is telling that only four of his passes were played ahead of him. He also won one tackle, made no interceptions and touched the ball 30 times.
|Passing Accuracy||Key Passes||Tackles Won||Interceptions Won||Touches||Dribbles||Forward Pass||Mins Played|
With Villa in need of additional midfield steel it was no surprise when N'Zogbia was replaced, but the change failed to alter the result.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what Villa fans made of N'zogbia's performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
N'Zogbia starts again!!! how many bad games does he have to have before he's dropped?! Bought time he stepped up!!— Rob (@Robrodders) December 13, 2014
@madjohnnyc Poor game. I thought N'Zogbia did nothing. Hutton did well after a dodgy start. Richardson silly. Benteke still great in the air— Bridge (@astlebridge) December 13, 2014
Imagine rating N'Zogbia— Rory (@roryyconlon) December 13, 2014
Only thing I don't agree with is starting N'Zogbia. And I'll never agree with that. #avfc— Alex Berwick (@Alex_Berwick) December 13, 2014
Hope Richardson and N'Zogbia never play for us again— Rory (@roryyconlon) December 13, 2014
N'Zogbia constantly turning something into nothing. Frustrating #avfc— Heart Of The Holte (@HeartOfTheHolte) December 13, 2014
