Aston Villa beat Norwich City 5-1 on Saturday, to the amazement of their own fans.
Dean Smith’s men took their fellow promoted outfit apart at Carrow Road – Villa finished fifth in 2018/19 and were promoted via the play-offs, while the Canaries won the division, finishing 18 points clear of Saturday’s opponents.
Nevertheless, Wesley scored twice, with Jack Grealish, Conor Hourihane and Douglas Luiz also on the scoresheet.
It marks Villa’s second win of the league campaign, having also beaten Everton in 2019/20.
Fans were stunned by the manner of the win, after spending the first few weeks of the season watching their side lose to Tottenham Hotspur, AFC Bournemouth, Crystal Palace and Arsenal.
They have also drawn with West Ham United and Burnley.
And supporters took to Twitter to lavish praise on their players as they head into the international break.
They will play Brighton & Hove Albion after the international break prior to a daunting trip to the Etihad Stadium to face champions Manchester City.
Take a look at the best of the reaction below!
Best performance of season. Nakamba just gets better with each game. Our best player this season Mcginn didn’t need to play well and we score 5. Great for confidence into break.?

This team was already playing well. It was only a matter of time before all the difficulties dissipated and the true strength of this team came out. Great win!
