'Very proud', 'Main man': Aston Villa fans react to performance of Tammy Abraham

Aston Villa beat Birmingham City 1-0 yesterday to ensure a league double over their fierce local rivals.

The game could have swung either way but it was Dean Smith who saw his side bolster their top-six chances.

Following yesterday’s game, several Villa players took to Twitter to state their glee at the derby-day result.
