Andre Green played the full 90 minutes as Aston Villa recorded a 3-1 win away to Nottingham Forest in the Championship on Wednesday night.
Forest actually took the lead early on through Jack Colback, but Villa then scored three times without reply to secure a huge three points.
John McGinn earned the majority of the plaudits with a super double on his return to the starting XI, but the performance of Green also captured the imagination of the Villa supporters.
According to WhoScored, the winger made three dribbles and also won three aerial duels during his 90 minutes on the field.
The 5 foot 11 attacker spent time on loan at Portsmouth earlier this season, but now back with Villa, he has taken part in the club’s last seven Championship matches.
There is no question that the 20-year-old was impressive against Forest and his performance has led to a host of praise from the Villa fans on social media.
