Some Aston Villa fans praise 26-year-old’s display in wake of dismal defeat today

A number of Aston Villa fans have taken to Twitter to praise defender Tyrone Mings for being one of the few shining lights in today’s dismal Premier League defeat.

Dean Smith’s charges headed to a resurgent Southampton but things went pear-shaped quickly as the hosts netted within the first ten minutes.

Moussa Djenepo got the better of Ezri Konsa near the byline and sent a cross towards the front post for Shane Long to bundle past Pepe Reina with his thigh in the eighth minute.

By this point, Mings had already cleared numerous threatening balls and were it not for his display, Aston Villa could have found themselves further behind sooner in the game.

In the end, Villa remained in the game – in terms of scoreline at least – right until the latter stages of injury time, when Stuart Armstrong made it two by finishing from Che Adams’ delivery.

Plenty of claret and blue faithful were unhappy with the performance in the 2-0 defeat to say the least, with relegation an ever increasing possibility.

One positive for some supporters came in Mings’ display – though that in itself came with a caveat, namely the prospect of losing him at the end of the season.

Here is some of the Villa fan reaction regarding the 26-year-old’s performance:

 

Up next for Villa – currently 17th in the Premier League table a point clear of the relegation zone but having played a game more than the bottom three – is the League Cup final against Manchester City next Sunday, before a return to top-flight action on 9 March away at Leicester City.
