Stan Collymore has suggested that Aston Villa new boy Wesley ‘needs coaching’.

Wesley was Villa’s most expensive signing of the summer, but he has not made a particularly encouraging start in the Premier League.

 

The Brazilian has started Villa’s first two matches, but he has failed to have much of an impact.

Dean Smith’s side have now been beaten by Tottenham Hotspur and Bournemouth in their first two games back in the top flight, with Wesley struggling in both games.

And Collymore has expressed doubts over the Villa front-man, as he thinks he is making basic errors.

Wesley is making a huge step up by coming to Villa so it is understandable that he is taking time to adjust to playing in the top flight.

Dean Smith needs to the striker to find his feet sooner rather than later though, as he is carrying a lot of Villa’s goalscoring burden.

The claret and blues are next in action against Everton at home, and Wesley could face another difficult test, as Marco Silva's side are still yet to concede this season.
