Aston Villa fans react to Tom Heaton’s solid display during Tottenham loss

Aston Villa signed Tom Heaton from Burnley in the summer.

Aston Villa were beaten by a late Tottenham Hotspur flurry on their Premier League return. But there were plenty of positives to take from the game, including the performance of debutant Tom Heaton.

Dean Smith swooped for Heaton in the summer transfer window, bringing him in to compete with Jed Steer. Although it seemed harsh on Steer after his role in Aston Villa’s promotion, Heaton showed exactly why Aston Villa signed him.

The England international was solid between the sticks and he kept Tottenham at bay for a long time. Three late goals made it 3-1 to Spurs but there was little Heaton could have done about any of those strikes.

Heaton made three saves which particularly caught the eye and two were from inside the penalty area. The other was from a Christian Eriksen free-kick, which he palmed away. Eventually, he was beaten but the 33-year-old showed his class to his new fans.

Here are some of the best tweets from Aston Villa fans discussing Heaton’s debut for the club against Tottenham.
