Aston Villa fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Chelsea-owned midfielder Danny Drinkwater against Manchester City.

Drinkwater, who spent the first half of the season on loan at Burnley from Chelsea and joined Villa on loan in the January transfer window until the end of the 2019-20 campaign, started the Premier League game against defending champions City at Villa Park on Sunday.

The 28-year-old midfielder started the match and played for 79 minutes, as Pep Guardiola’s side hammered the home team.

 

The England international should have done better for City’s opening goal and was at fault for the second.

According to WhoScored, Drinkwater had a pass accuracy of 88.2%, took 41 touches, and made two tackles, two interceptions and one clearance.

The defeat to City means that Dean Smith’s side are third from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment with 21 points from 22 matches.

Villa fans were not impressed with the display produced by Drinkwater against City and have criticised him on Twitter.
