This post then led to a lot of Villa fans responding with their thoughts on the Frenchman.

Here’s a sample of Villa fans responding to the post:

Have you been impressed with Guilbert so far this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The full-back first signed to the club back in January 2019 from French side SM Caen for a fee of £4.5 million, but for the remainder of the 2018/19 season, Guilbert was loaned back to his former side before returning to Villa in the summer (per Transfermarkt). Now in his first season for Dean Smith’s team, Guilbert has made 27 appearances across all competitions, in which he has scored two goals and provided two assists (per Transfermarkt). These performances have resulted in Guilbert being awarded a season rating of 6.88 from WhoScored, which is the fourth-highest rating for a Villa player so far this campaign.

What do we think?

It’s to see so many Villa fans praising Guilbert after watching his season highlights so far. From their reactions, it appears that he has left a positive impact on these fans in his first season at Villa Park.
