Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to Bacuna's performance against Swansea

Aston Villa 2

Aston Villa lost 1-0 to Swansea City on Saturday but what did fans think of Leandro Bacuna's performance?

What a difference a week makes.

Just a few days ago, Aston Villa fans were hailing Leandro Bacuna’s performance against Sunderland, when the 23-year-old tore the Black Cats apart as a makeshift right-back, setting up two of the goals in a 4-0 victory and looking a constant threat.

But a week on from those exploits, Villa’s young Dutchman found himself on the wrong end of more than a few tweets, with the club’s supporters questioning his defensive capabilities.

There is no doubt the Villa player can bomb forward with devastating effect, but against Swansea City he was caught out time and again and his enemy on the day – Jefferson Montero – ultimately provided the ball that led to Bafetimbi Gomis’s match-winning strike.

It remains to be seen if Villa manager Tim Sherwood will persevere with Bacuna at the back or move him further forward as some fans are calling for.

After the match, we took to Twitter to see what Villa supporters thought of Bacuna’s latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
