According to the Daily Mail, Everton loanee Neal Maupay was involved in some “farcical” situations during Brentford’s encounter against a “furious” Aston Villa.

Despite the fact that both Villa and Brentford have been charged by the FA for failing to control their players, the former club is highly angry with the Bees’ behavior, according to the national news outlet [22 December].

Brentford substitute Emiliano Martinez collided with Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, who is on loan from the Toffees until the end of the season. The Frenchman charged the shot-stopper, who fell to the floor following an incident.
Eleven yellow cards were shown during the final 20 minutes of last Sunday’s Premier League encounter, including both managers, with Ben Mee and Boubacar Kamara sent out.

A perilous game to play

We all know Maupay can be a nuisance when he wants to be, having received 18 Premier League yellow cards since 2019. He also had 18 yellow cards during his previous two Championship seasons with Brentford.
There is a delicate line between being zealous for victory and doing something unwise. The line is commonly blurred with Maupay.

The 27-year-old scored his first goal in 14 months in a 3-2 home win against West Ham last month before netting his second of the season less than a month later against Luton Town.

The forward is an odd phenomena. He scored 37 goals in 85 appearances during his breakout seasons at Brentford. In his first three Premier League seasons, he scored 26 goals.

Maupay, on the other hand, has only scored three goals in his last two seasons. His future at Goodison Park is still in the air, with his loan term expiring in June 2024.

Maupay offers considerably more issues than solutions, as proven by his recent activities at the Gtech Community Stadium, collecting up more cautions than goals scored. Is it worthwhile to keep the player? Most likely not.

Will it be simple to sell him in the winter or summer? The answer is still unknown.
