Aston Villa fans swooned over Tyrone Mings’ performance against Burnley

Tyrone Mings missed four matches for Aston Villa through injury, having been forced off in the 23rd minute against Leicester City.

There was to be no easing-in period for the 26-year-old though, as he went straight into the centre of the back three, playing the entirety of Villa’s 2-1 victory over Burnley.

And the decision to throw him back into the action was justified by Mings’ performance throughout that match, as he made an integral contribution to ensuring Dean Smith’s men got the three points at Turf Moor.

The Villa ace put in a colossal performance, making a total of nine clearances – the highest number of any player on the pitch – as well as coming up with one interception and winning three aerial duels.

He was also comfortable on the ball, which did almost get him in trouble at one stage, but that saw him maintain a pass success rate of 79%, while playing some progressive passes that helped Villa to get up the pitch.

Fans were delighted with the performance, with superlatives being used including “immense”, “hero” and an “absolute animal”.

There was also reference made to the fact that he has been missed and that fans are happy to see him back in the team.

Villa recorded three losses and a win during his absence, which included the highly frustrating 3-0 defeat at the hands of Watford.
