'Hope he's on the bench': Some Aston Villa fans buzzing over Friday news about 'starboy'

Aston Villa fans have praised Cameron Archer after the Villans academy graduate won the EFL Trophy Player of the Round award.

The 19-year-old is one of the most highly rated talents at Villa Park and has made his first-team breakthrough this season.

Archer has made six appearances for Villa at senior level, of which three have come in the Premier League.

Although he’s still featuring plentifully at Under-23s level, it’s clear that he’s head and shoulders above most of his peers.

In the EFL Trophy, Archer scored in all three group games for Villa’s U21s, helping them top their group and qualify for the knockout rounds.

He scored a goal in a 3-1 win against Wycombe to start the campaign before following it up with a sublime hat-trick in a 4-2 victory at Burton.

The striker continued his fine form with a brace in a 4-2 triumph over MK Dons to round off the group stage.

As a result, it’s unsurprising to see Archer win the award, and some Villa fans have lauded their young starboy.

There have also been calls for him to sign a new contract, as his current deal expires next summer.
