Aston Villa fans react to Gabriel Agbonlahor's performance against West Ham United

Aston Villa were beaten 2-0 by West Ham United at Upton Park yesterday.

Gabriel Agbonlahor failed to impress Aston Villa supporters with his performance against West Ham United last night.

After being handed a rare start by Remi Garde, Agbonlahor had plenty of motivation to try and force his way back into starting contention.

However, the 29-year-old was virtually ineffectual in his striking role - and he barely posed any problems to the West Ham defence.

Although Agbonlahor is far from match sharp, his performance yesterday did little to suggest that he is worthy of earning more first-team football.

Agbonlahor looked off the pace throughout the contest, and even his usual speed wasn’t on display.

The forward was easily marked out of the game, but his task was made harder by Jordan Ayew’s indiscipline.

Ayew was sent off early on in the contest, for inexplicably elbowing Aaron Cresswell in an off-the-ball incident.

Agbonlahor was then made to plow a lone furrow up-front, but even though he was isolated - Villa fans have not been sympathetic with the striker. Here is the best reaction on Twitter.
