Stan Collymore has expressed his concern about Aston Villa striker Wesley Moraes on Twitter following the match against West Ham United.
The former Villa striker believes that Wesley needs a striker coach to help him get his basics right and to improve.
The 22-year-old failed to score for the Villans on Monday evening, as Dean Smith’s side played out a goalless draw with West Ham at Villa Park in the Premier League.
Although the Brazilian striker started the match well when he got the better of West Ham defender Issa Diop, he failed to make a huge impact thereafter.
According to WhoScored, Wesley took two shots, had a pass accuracy of 76.5%, and mad two tackles and one clearance.
So far this season, the youngster has scored one goal in five Premier League appearances for Villa, according to WhoScored.
Concerned about Wesley. Blowing hard, finding holding it up tough & not sure what he’s thinking when he went down at the end.
Genuinely needs a striker coach to help him. If he can get basics right, there’s something there, but he’s not and you can see its getting to him.

Wesley joined Villa from Belgian side Club Brugge in the summer transfer window for a fee reported by Sky Sports to be worth £22 million.
Villa are 17th in the Premier League table at the moment with four points from five matches.
