Brilliant game. The thing that stood out for me over the summer were the amount of reports of him needing confidence and an arm around the shoulder to succeed. That should go a fair way for him to get the fans properly onside. Delighted for him.

I was heavily critical of his last two performances but credit where it's due, today he was unplayable. He raised his game from a generous 6 to an outstanding 9.5.

Keep it up.

Aston Villa striker Wesley tells BBC Sport: "I am very happy tonight, what a performance from the team. We worked hard, played very well and we hope to continue like this week by week then we will see what happens.

"The manager knows me, he sees me everyday working hard and the supporters know me too. I keep calm, I know my qualities and today you saw that I can do.

"I hope to continue like this, the last two games were very difficult but now I have to help my team with goals.

"The noise was incredible, the supporters were unbelievable and I hope they continue like this to help us.

"I have to work hard everyday and continue like this."

Really well taken goal and he was on fire after that. Some lovely hold up play - strength, skill, vision. Bet hes horrible to play against.

Looks easily triggered though - can see him getting the Mings headlock of love a few times this season.

It's certainly shown him he's capable of playing in this league.  Confidence now has to be on the up, looking forward to him continuing his education.

Superb tonight. Gone from being bullied to being the bully in three games. Held everything up and brought others in to play all game. Will be a crowd favourite the way he puts himself about and backs his team mates up aswell.
