Tottenham Hotspur loanee Cameron Carter-Vickers got a massive chance to impress his parent club this weekend.
A number of Tottenham Hotspur and Swansea City fans have taken to Twitter to react to Cameron Carter-Vickers' performance during the Swans' FA Cup defeat to Manchester City on Saturday.
Graham Potter's side are out of the competition, but only after a comeback from the Premier League champions at the Liberty Stadium that provided plenty of controversy.
Swansea - who had taken a 2-0 lead into half-time - felt aggrieved by the decision to award a penalty following a challenge from Carter-Vickers on Raheem Sterling. Replays showed the Spurs ace got a foot on the ball, and many believe that VAR would have overturned the decision had it been available.
City's winner would come from Sergio Aguero, who appeared to be in an offside position before finding the back of the net.
It may have ultimately been a disappointing night for the Championship side, but they can take a number of positives from the performance. And Carter-Vickers is arguably one player who can hold his head up high.
The defender perhaps sent a message to his parent club with a solid performance against one of the most lethal attacks in the country. He also highlighted his versatility as he seemed to be playing in more of a left-back role at times during the contest.
And it appears that a large majority of the Spurs and Swansea fans on social media are in agreement that Carter-Vickers was excellent throughout the game.
Plenty of the Swans supporters have suggested that they would love to see a permanent deal targeted this summer, while some Tottenham fans appear to think that the 21-year-old is finally realising his potential.
Here is how some of the Spurs supporters reacted to his display...
Interesting that CCV is playing LB for Swansea right now. He's looking very good/calm on the ball. Good experience for him against full-strength Man City side. He's been outstanding in the air on every set piece @WindyCOYS @Lilywhite_Rose— Hotspur Banter (@Hotspur_Banter) March 16, 2019
I always liked CCV seems to be improving with regular game time— Musa (@Musathfc) March 16, 2019
Brilliant performance— Ellis (@NiceOneSonny__) March 16, 2019
Cameron Carter Vickers moves less gracefully than Leatherface on sleeping pills. Mess of a footballer.— Sanj (@AHeavenofHell) March 16, 2019
Carter-Vickers didn’t deserve to be on the losing side.— Lee ☯️ (@LeeBow74) March 16, 2019
And this is what some of the Swansea fans were saying...
Reminds me so much of Ashley Williams ngl, big potential for the lad— Matthew (17-52) (@ManLikeMcBurnie) March 16, 2019
He was quality there and I thought Carter-Vickers was excellent, especially as he was playing at left back for so long.— Jack Swan (@jackswan1411) March 16, 2019
Tactics worked well, I’ve felt GP has tweaked a bit too much in the league but the switches worked well today, despite the end result.
Cameron Carter-Vickers has been exceptional since he came in for Joe Rodon, I’d love Swansea to sign him on a permanent deal.— Lloyd. (@LloydTellis) March 16, 2019
Carter-Vickers is honestly such a good footballer— ً (@NotDanJames) March 16, 2019
