Wesley Moraes had a tough Premier League debut for Aston Villa at the weekend as the Brazilian struggled to make his mark in the 3-1 loss at Tottenham Hotspur.
The 22-year-old spent 74 minutes on the field at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
However, according to WhoScored, Wesley only had one shot and won just one aerial duel during a difficult start to his career in the English game.
It was always going to be a hard first match for the centre-forward but a lot is expected of the South American when considering that he cost the club in the region of £22m.
The Villa fans, though, are confident that the attacker will come good this term.
Indeed, the club’s supporters were fairly vocal in the summer arrival’s defence when the topic of Wesley was raised on Twitter earlier this week.

Think nerves got better of him on Saturday! Ball didn’t stick and went down too easily! But sure he will improve and Saturday villa park will be the best time to improve his form
