Sunday proved to be a special day for Aston Villa as Steve Bruce’s side recorded a 2-0 win over their bitter rivals Birmingham City at Villa Park.
Not only was it an important win in terms of the bragging rights, the success saw Villa moved into second position in the Championship table.
Bruce’s side have now won each of their last seven league fixtures during a storming run of form, and they look well placed to secure a return to the Premier League this season.
One of those that particularly impressed on the afternoon was Ahmed Elmohamady, with the 30-year-old a constant threat down the right.
The defender joined Villa from Hull City last summer, and he has registered five assists in 29 Championship appearances during the 2017-18 campaign.
Not much was made of Elmohamady’s switch to Villa Park last summer, but there is no question that he has been key in the team’s recent push up the table.
The Villa fans have been absolutely delighted with the Egyptian’s form, and a selection of the Twitter reaction can be found below:
