0 tackles, 1 interception: Off day for Aston Villa star partially responsible for Fulham defeat?

Published

on

Aston Villa tasted defeat for the first time in the league in 2018 at the weekend as Fulham ran out 2-0 winners at Craven Cottage.

The men from Villa Park have had a good calendar year to really lift themselves into the automatic promotion picture and a win or even draw at the weekend would have been a very positive result.

A loss is what came, though, along with a performance that lacked the intensity and quality of the game before against Birmingham City.

An off-day for Villa, then, and an off-day for our latest FLW Spotlight subject – John Terry:

Terry, of course, has been absolutely brilliant for Villa this season in bringing his experience and knowledge to the fore in the Championship.

Certainly, signing him has proven to be a gamble worth taking for the club but he was perhaps not has influential at the back as he’d have liked and Villa seemed to be a bit off of the pace.

Not helped by the lack of pressure that was applied further forwards by Villa, Terry and co. at the back had to deal with a confident Fulham side and, ultimately, they could not keep them quiet.

No tackles and just one interception are stats from a defender that perhaps did not have their best game and – though he was not the main man at fault for the loss – Terry will be looking to get himself and his team-mates back on form v Preston.
