Villa fans react on Twitter to Carles Gil's performance against Liverpool

Aston Villa lost 2-0 to Liverpool on Saturday but what did fans make of Carles Gil's performance?

Aston Villa could not get the better of Liverpool on Saturday, with Paul Lambert’s side losing 2-0 to the Reds.

Strikers Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert proved the goal-scoring heroes for Liverpool, with Villa failing to score from any of their four shots on target.

The result means Villa slipped to 14th in the Premier League table, just three points outside the relegation zone. But despite their latest disappointment the Villa fans did have one reason to be cheerful.

The second-half cameo of January signing Carles Gil suggested Villa have found a gem, after the 22-year-old attacking midfielder gave Liverpool a scare with a performance that hinted that he will not take long to settle into his new surroundings.

Gil arrived from Valencia last week and, while he will need to work on his goal-scoring and assist record in the years to come, his talent is such that he could cause Villa’s opponents no end of problems this season and beyond.

After their latest match, we took to Twitter to see what Villa fans thought of Gil’s performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
