Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to West Ham draw: 'Guzan is a god'

The American made more saves than anyone in the Premier League on Saturday during Aston Villa's 0-0 draw with West Ham.

Aston Villa fans thanked one man in particular on Twitter after their 0-0 draw at West Ham United yesterday.

Paul Lambert's Villa side had previously suffered six straight Premier League defeats and, though this was no giant stride in the right direction, a point and a clean sheet were very welcome for the visitors.

And the man the Aston Villa faithful heaped praise on after the draw? Why, goalkeeper Brad Guzan, of course!

"I thought we were excellent, resolute, everything you need to get anything from here," Lambert told BBC Sport after the game.

"West Ham have been on a rich vein of form. They have been playing really well, so to come here and get something is a big result for us. I thought we were first class. It was a massive point for us.

"I thought in the second half we looked comfortable up until the last five minutes or so when they put their big lads on. Guzan has made a world-class save towards the end."
