Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to Kevin Toner's full Premier League debut

The Irish youngster seemed to impress Villa fans, despite a 3-2 loss.

Aston Villa took on Watford today and for a moment it looked like they might actually pick up a rare win.

Goals from Ciaran Clark and Jordan Ayew looked to have earned Villa the win before a red card from Aly Cissokho cost them dearly.

The Frenchman made a challenge as the last man and was sent for an early bath.

Troy Deeney, a boyhood Birmingham City fan, then scored two late goals to condemn the Premier League’s basement club to another loss.

But there was a bonus from the game, as Aston Villa fans were impressed with the performance of full debutant Kevin Toner.

The Irishman, who recently made his debut for the club, started the game as part of a three-man defence and seemed to do enough to impress the Aston Villa fans with an assured performance.

The likes of Toner will be tasked with making an impact with the club next season in the Championship as Villa look to earn immediate promotion back to the Premier League.

Here is how Aston Villa fans reacted to the performance of Toner…
