Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to Tom Cleverley performance v Sunderland

The Manchester United loanee has been impressive since Tim Sherwood arrived at the club.

Aston Villa looked to be gently slipping toward relegation under Paul Lambert this season. The club took action and sent him on his way. In his place, they brought in former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood and the impact has been instantaneous.

Three wins on the bounce, including the 4-0 thrashing of Sunderland yesterday, Villa have been in great form since his arrival.

That has largely been down to Sherwood's ability to get the best out of previously under-performing players.

The likes of Leandro Bacuna, Gabriel Agbonahor and Christian Benteke have all impressed in recent weeks.

But the performances of Tom Cleverley have also been a major positive. The Manchester United loanee has previously been criticised for his negative and uninspiring performances in the Villa midfield. However the England international has clearly been given a massive confidence boost by Sherwood - as his performances have improved greatly.

There is no doubt that Aston Villa fans have also noticed his upturn in form.

On Twitter last night and this morning Villa fans have been raving about several of their players with the performance of Cleverley just one such performance.

Villa fans will be hoping there is plenty more to come.

Here is some of the best reaction from Twitter to his performance at The Stadium of Light:
