Aston Villa fans delighted with Ahmed Elmohamady after Rotherham victory

Aston Villa managed to recover from a goal and a man down against Rotherham on Wednesday night as they secured their seventh win on the bounce.

Key to that was right-back Ahmed Elmohamady, who provided the assist for Jack Grealish’s winning goal.

It was as far from a comfortable victory as you could get for the Villans but Dean Smith’s men were fortunate enough to prevail.

Speaking about the performance after the game, a host of Villa fans praised the Egyptian defender.

One fan labelled him as Mr Consistent, as they were quick to congratulate him for his performance at the New York Stadium.

Another supporter said the 31-year-old’s display was an unbelievable effort whilst a fellow member of the Villa Park faithful claimed he was as cool as a cucumber.

Elmohamady has stepped up in place of the injured Alan Hutton and has had a brilliant impact on the side.

Hutton is nearing a return to first team action but recent displays from his fellow right-back suggest he’ll struggle to get back into the side.

He has started 28 times in the Championship this term and provided seven assists in the process.

Here’s the best of the reaction from Twitter to his midweek performance.
