Aston Villa’s fine run of form in the Championship continued as they thrashed Burton Albion 4-0 at the Pirelli Stadium on Tuesday night, and Villa fans were particularly impressed with the performance of Robert Snodgrass.
The Scottish winger joined the Midlands outfit on a season-long loan deal from West Ham United last month and while he has taken a little while to find his fitness and form, he showed the difference he can make for Steve Bruce’s men this season against the Brewers.
The 30-year-old set up Albert Adomah for the second goal with a fine through ball before he brilliant found the bottom corner with a low strike from just outside the penalty area later in the first half.
Snodgrass was also heavily involved in the fourth goal, as he set Scott Hogan away before the striker crossed for Josh Onomah to score as Bruce’s side won for the third successive match.
Aston Villa supporters were quick to have their say on the wide man’s showing via social media, and while some it was his “best game in a Villa shirt”, others believe “he’s flat out changed the team”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

Snodgrass played especially well. Played killer through balls that we've lacked recently. Involved in 3 of the goals. 👏 #AVFC

He's flat out changed the team. Signing of the summer, okay maybe JT, but then Snod.

Taylor & Snodgrass had their best games for #avfc by far. Really great performance all round. The unbeaten run continues!

Decent ball by Snodgrass to set Hogan off for his cut back for the Onomah goal. Best game for Snodgrass in a Villa shirt yet. 4-0 #AVFC
