A number of Aston Villa fans loved what they saw from midfielder Marvelous Nakamba in Monday’s Premier League clash with West Ham United.
The 25-year-old impressed on his first-team debut against Crewe Alexandra towards the end of last month but has had to wait for his first Premier League outing.
Nakamba was named in the starting XI against the Hammers, though, and played 81 minutes of the goalless draw at Villa Park.
According to WhoScored, the summer arrival from Club Brugge had a pass success rate of 81% while he won five tackles before being replaced in the latter stages.
Villa could not make use of their one-man advantage to grab a winner in the latter stages, although it was another step in the right direction for the promoted club.

We’ve got to look at positives. Defence was excellent. Not many will stop this West Ham side scoring. Promising debut from Nakamba. Our attacking players can surely only get better. #avfc
