Axel Tuanzebe returned to Aston Villa on loan ahead of the 2018-19 campaign, and the defender has made 13 appearances for the club this season.
Steve Bruce played Tuanzebe at right-back, but the Manchester United defender has been moved into central defence since Dean Smith arrived as head coach.
The 20-year-old could not prevent Villa from suffering a 2-1 defeat to Norwich City in the Championship on Tuesday night, but the club’s fans were once again pleased with his performance.
There is a general feeling amongst Man United supporters that Tuanzebe has a good chance of becoming a first-team player at Old Trafford, and there is no question that the Red Devils will be closely watching the 6ft 1in ace in action this season.
Villa have only won one of their last six in the Championship, but certainly have one of the most talented squads in the division, and are actually only three points off the top six despite their disappointing form this season.
Tuanzebe has been a real positive in recent weeks, and a selection of the Twitter reaction from the Villa supporters can be seen below:
Axel Tuanzebe is a class act. Only positive from tonight. #avfc

Thought Tuanzebe was the pick 4us 2nite, also thought Neil Taylor has settled back in2 the team well, not Taylor’s biggest fan but done ok last 2games & u can c benefit of having left footer in that position rather than Hutton. Somehow only 8pts off top & not got goin yet #avfc
