Aston Villa put in an impressive performance to beat Championship side Bristol City on Thursday night – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter raved about their forward Keinan Davis for his contribution.
Dean Smith’s men won 3-0 away to a Bristol City side that sit second in the Championship during the early stages of the season.
The Midlands giants progressed from the Carabao Cup third round to continue in the competition and they will face Stoke City in the next stage.
Anwar El Ghazi opened the scoring in the 11th minute, while shortly after Bertrand Traore netted an outrageous volley on his debut for the club.
Another summer signing in Ollie Watkins added a third in the second-half after coming off the bench and overall it was a game that should give the team plenty of momentum moving forward.
A selection of Villa supporters on social media singled out Davis for his display on the night and felt he was a real standout.
The 22-year-old provided an excellent assist for the opening goal, as he managed to dribble his way all the way to the byline before having the vision to pick out teammate El Ghazi in the box.
He is a powerhouse centre-forward that was a handful for the Bristol City defence with his strength and movement, and he was eventually taken off in the second-half.
It’s an obvious weakness in Davis’ game that he’s not a prolific scorer with just five goals in 70 senior appearances for Villa, but his all-round game is strong and hopefully for him the goals will come.
Here are some Villa fans discussing Davis:

First half Davis has been immense. Deserves a goal. Traore great goal looks lively. El Ghazi wants to play today. Ramsey looks good again, Taylor 😂😂😂 #avfc
