Ollie has a great first touch -sometimes. He'll need to be more consistent at this to get more international chances.
Misses too many gilt edged chances to be considered as a world class striker

I don't think many people consider him to be world class, however being as we only have one English world class striker around, he is one of the best of the rest who can cover for him, which is what he was doing the other day.

To be fair, sometimes he does have, like sometimes he's deadly in front of goal. It's just that on occasions, his first touch has all the subtlety and finesse of me on a bouncy castle. Whilst drunk, and wearing clogs.

Another game another goal. 7 in 13 PL games, 12 in 20 in all club comps.

A few inches from a hattrick too. A whisker offside (and he doesn't often get caught now), and then not far wide from a header.

Quality winner today. Scarcely believable miss from the header off the McGinn cross, I know it got a block but you have to score those. That's Ollie!

Yeah, with a cracking touch & goal for the win too... 👍

Fair play to this sort of form. 👌

He done well today. He was feeding off scraps and still nearly had three. Iím not so sure it was offside either. Bloody close call.

As for Son, he had a right stinker, he was miles offside so many times today.

Yeah another day gets a hat trick
Ball in net twice.
And a brilliant finish for his goal.
Other through balls just didn't run for him

Typical Villa luck Ollie buries the offside one but misses the arguably easier chance that wasn't. Very good touch and quick feet for the goal, didn't look to be a lot on when he received the ball.

Those couple of passes to set Ollie up for the winner and Ollie's finish were actually things of beauty.
