The 21-year-old striker has been in impressive form, scoring six goals and providing two assists in his last seven appearances across all competitions. This has solidified his position as the main attacking threat in the team.
With upcoming matches against Luton Town and Fulham, followed by the FA Cup fifth-round trip to Nottingham Forest, he will be looking to continue his impressive run. On the other hand, a 27-year-old player has also been performing well, scoring eight goals this season.
Although he has lost his regular starting position, he has proven to be a valuable asset coming off the bench. The team has faced challenges with injuries, particularly with their left-back, Luke Shaw.
His absence has forced them to make adjustments during matches, indicating the need for better depth in that position. The team has had to rely on Diogo Dalot as their sole fit full-back, highlighting the need for more options in that area.
Despite these challenges, the team achieved a significant victory at Villa Park, which was important for the team’s coach for various reasons.
