In recent weeks, though, the 25-year-old has looked dangerous and created chances and played prominent roles in goals, but last night he was dreadful.
Almiron worked hard, as he always does, but the lack of composure and ability in the final third was really worrying, and the Villa Park faithful took great delight in Almiron’s constant miss control and poor decision making.
The former Liverpool man, though, did admit that he feels sorry for Almiron but that no goals or no assists from an attacking player in 23 games is just not good enough, and he may need to have a spell on the bench.
The scrutiny on Almiron is increasing week-by-week, and this criticism is unlikely to help, but he does need to start delivering at some point.
Do you want Almiron to be dropped?
Yes, he needs a spell on the bench
No, he will come good
