Aston Villa fans have taken to Twitter to react after watching what Leon Bailey did to Marcos Alonso in the 61st minute at Stamford Bridge.

Alonso had a few yards on him, but Bailey still reached the ball.

The 24-year-old only entered the game in the 56th minute in place of Jacob Ramsey, but he still found time to cause havoc.

In just over half an hour of football in west London, Bailey showed he has what it takes to become a Premier League star.

Aside from the ‘disgusting’ nutmeg on Alonso, Aston Villa’s new No.31 completed two dribbles and made one key pass.

His skilful nature also saw him earn one freekick for the Villans.

It was a busy display from Bailey, up against the champions of Europe of all clubs, so there’s plenty to be encouraged about despite the defeat.

When Emiliano Buendia returns, it will be a joy to watch him, Bailey and Ollie Watkins terrorise Premier League defences.
