The Villa Park summer signing was impressive as Dean Smith and co won convincingly on the road at the weekend.
A number of Aston Villa fans have taken to Twitter to comment on the news that Wesley Moraes has been named in the FUT Team of the Week.
The Villa Park summer signing scored two goals and claimed an assist in the 5-1 Premier League hammering of Norwich City at the weekend, and could have had a hat-trick were his penalty not saved by Michael McGovern.
Wesley now has four goals for Villa in eight Premier League appearances, a far cry from earlier in the season when some fans and pundits were criticising him while he was still finding his feet in English football.
As a result, the Brazilian made it into the FUT Team of the Week, something the Villa Park side proudly showed off on their Twitter feed:
Here is what some claret and blue faithful said on social media in response, overall delighted that he is answering his critics and describing the update as a major confidence booster:
