Gestede scored the match-winning goal after being introduced as a second half substitute in Aston Villa's match against Bournemouth on Saturday.
Gestede, who joined Aston Villa this summer following two highly productive Championship seasons at Blackburn, needed little time to put his stamp on Saturday's Premier League opener. His aerial presence ultimately decided the match, as the Frenchman skied to head home a corner kick in the 72nd minute. Similar to departed forward Christian Benteke in terms of his commanding physicality, Gestede's ability to lead the line could earn him a place in Villa's starting lineup moving forward, potentially making him an undervalued fantasy striker.
