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:

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.
