The Aston Villa wing-back didn’t have a brilliant game against Burnley, going by some comments on Twitter.
Aston Villa fans on Twitter aren’t singing the praises of Frederic Guilbert.
Dean Smith’s side picked up a very big win in beating Burnley 2-1 at Turf Moor to move two points above the relegation zone.
A number of Aston Villa players stole the show, such as Jack Grealish who made it 2-0 after Wesley’s opener, while Tyrone Mings and Douglas Luiz also impressed.
But one man who didn’t – according to some Villa supporters – is the French full-back.
Guilbert was deployed in a wing-back role and seemed to struggle against the adventurous Charlie Taylor, who was given far too much freedom down the Clarets’ left-hand side.
And here’s how some Aston Villa fans reacted to the performance:
Guilbert hasn’t stopped one cross yet the prat

Would be tempted to take off Guilbert, too many crosses coming in on our righthand side #AVFC

Nakamba starting to get rattled on the ball. Guilbert seems to be finding it tough vs Taylor.

My enthusiasm for Guilbert is evaporating.

Guilbert, Taylor and Mings all like moving the ball forward. This gives them the freedom to.

For the most part, Guilbert, who officially joined for £4.4 million last January [Express and Star], is having a very decent first season in the West Midlands.
He has had bad games here and there, but he has largely been a consistent player under Smith.
