Aston Villa were beaten 2-1 at Norwich City's Carrow Road ground.
Aston Villa fans are reacting to James Chester's performance in Tuesday's defeat at Norwich City.
Chester headed Villa in front from a Conor Hourihane cross inside 20 minutes at Carrow Road.
But the Welshman's evening peaked at that point, after which Jordan Rhodes scored twice to turn the game in Norwich's favour.
Chester has been one of Aston Villa's most consistent performers since signing from West Bromwich Albion in summer 2016 - for a reported fee of £9 million.
But he appears to have found things tougher going this time around - in the absence of John Terry beside him - and unfortunately for the 29-year-old, several of the Villans faithful have started to notice...
Tuanzebe was outstanding last night. However, the big concern for me is Chester who looks a shadow of his former self. Nervy on the ball and caught out of position numerous times. Yet we have no one else to come in thanks to our idiotic previous manager #AVFC— Gareth Marsh (@GMarsh79) October 24, 2018
Tuanzebe is our best centre half, it’s Chester that’s the problem, he looks a shadow of his former self #avfc— Jamie Morris (@Truevillainavfc) October 23, 2018
What’s happened to Chester? He was carried all game last night again!! #AVFC— Dean Smiths Ticker (@itsf73tch) October 24, 2018

Chester may have scored tonight, but he was arguably our weakest player. So many mistakes from him defensively. #avfc— Nick Parr (@NickParr) October 23, 2018
What has happened to chester??? #avfc he’s never been much of a ball player but he looks all over the place. Don’t look comfortable playing out from the back at all— Daniel (@Leighty100) October 23, 2018
James Chester I think showing how much of a better player John Terry made him look last year!! He’s been so poor this year!!— Jason Ramsay (@ramma157) October 23, 2018
The Norwich result leaves Aston Villa 16th in the Championship, although their position could worsen still if Bolton Wanderers beat Nottingham Forest on Wednesday.
Should Aston Villa fans be concerned by James Chester's performances this season?
