Exclusive: Pundit claims Ezri Konsa is better than Tyrone Mings

In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Rob Lee, who made 280 Premier League appearances, claimed that Ezri Konsa is a better defender than England international, Tyrone Mings.

Konsa is still awaiting his first England call up with Gareth Southgate opting for his Aston Villa teammate, as well as players such as Eric Dier and Conor Coady, for the latest round of World Cup qualifiers.

Who is better, Konsa or Mings?





The 23-year old has featured in 26 of Villa’s 29 games in the Premier League this season and he’s been a big reason as to why they have only conceded 30 goals, the third-lowest in the top flight and only behind Manchester City and Chelsea.

Villa have exceeded many people’s expectations this season and being solid at the back has been a huge factor – Konsa has a 6.82 WhoScored rating alongside Mings who has a 6.88 rating for the season.

Speaking on who he would rather have in his team and why Mings has gone down in his estimations now, Lee told FFC:

I think if I had the choice between Mings or Konsa, I would pick Konsa. Mings has done brilliantly since he moved to Aston Villa though.

“However, he got bullied by Joelinton the other week and that was the first time I’ve seen Mings get bullied because he’s a big lad, and I just think Konsa looks so comfortable.

I’ve seen clips of him obviously but against Newcastle was the first time I saw him live and he lookedtop player so, he just needs to continue to do what he’s doing.”

Who scored the winner against Arsenal in Villa's penultimate game of last season?

Villa paid just under £12 million for Konsa last season where he impressed at Brentford who were narrowly defeated in the play-off final against Fulham last season.

Konsa was part of the England side which won the U20 World Cup in 2017 which included the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Ademola Lookman and Ainsley Maitland-Niles.
