Anwar El Ghazi starred in the 2-2 draw away to West Brom on Friday night – and some of the Aston Villa fans on Twitter hailed him for the quality of his performance.
Dean Smith’s side missed the opportunity to move into the play-off positions, as a late controversial goal that struck the hand of Jay Rodriguez earned the hosts a point.
El Ghazi was the standout player on the park following his contribution and he had put Villa in front with his deflected shot in the first-half, with Dwight Gayle responding quickly an equaliser.
The 23-year-old’s second goal was a stunning effort that flew into the top corner from range and he’s now scored three times in his last three games for Vill.a
He is currently on a season-long loan from Lille and is beginning to make a serious impact with supporters.
El Ghazi is a skilful right-winger that tormented West Brom’s left-back Kieran Gibbs throughout the match and appears to have discovered his best form.
The Holland international struggled to make an impact under former manager Steve Bruce with the Midlands giants, but is now getting his opportunity under Smith to express himself.
Villa host Stoke City next Saturday in their next Championship fixture and the dazzling attacker will be hoping to keep up his form.
A selection of fans went wild on social media about El Ghazi’s latest contribution, with one even making an astonishing comparison to Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo.
Here are some of the Villa fan tweets on El Ghazi:
What a performance from El Ghazi tonight. Best game in a Villa shirt so far 👏

Anyone else think El Ghazi has that Ronaldo like swagger about his play? Dribbles like him, shoots like him… is it just me?
