Aston Villa fans lavish praise on Glenn Whelan

Aston Villa continued their excellent run of form with a 3-0 home win over Middlesbrough in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Anwar El-Ghazi, John McGinn and Albert Adomah scored the goals for Villa, but the club’s supporters were keen to pay tribute to experienced midfielder Glenn Whelan.

According to WhoScored, Whelan – a 2017 arrival from Stoke City – had a pass success rate of 93%, while he had two shots and won two headers during his 90 minutes on the field.

The likes of McGinn, Tyrone Mings and Jack Grealish have received a lot of praise in recent matches, but Whelan was outstanding against Boro and that has been recognised.

The win on Saturday has moved Dean Smith’s side into the top six and they will fancy their chances of staying in the playoff spots between now and the end of the season.
