Manchester United defeated Aston Villa 1-0 at Villa Park in the Premier League on Sunday.

Well-known German football expert Jan Age Fjortoft has been singing the praises of Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian on social networking site Twitter.

Italy international full-back Darmian joined United from Serie A outfit Torino last month and has already started to show his class in the Premier League.

The 25-year-old right-back started the league match between Aston Villa and the Red Devils at Villa Park on Friday evening.

Darmian played the entire 90 minutes of the encounter, helping Louis van Gaal’s side register a 1-0 win in the process.

The former AC Milan prospect had a pass accuracy of 77%, put in one cross, won 56% of the tackles, and made five interceptions, nine clearances and one block.

Former Middlesbrough and Sheffield United forward Fjortoft was impressed with the display of Darmian and raved about him on Twitter.

United have won both their Premier League games so far this season. The 1-0 win against Villa on Friday followed a 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford last weekend.
