Aston Villa picked up a great point on Sunday afternoon as they picked up a 2-2 draw away at Manchester United.

Villa went into the game having beaten Newcastle United 2-0 on Monday night, and took that momentum into the start of this game, as Jack Grealish curled home a stunning opener.

Marcus Rashford's equaliser ended up going down as an own goal, and Victor Lindelof looked to have turned the game on its head when he put United in front.

 

Villa weren't to be beaten though, as Tyrone Mings grabbed them a well-deserved and potentially vital point on their travels.

Grealish will have understandably stolen the headlines after his remarkable goal, but a number of his teammates impressed – and Ezri Konsa was one of them.

Dean Smith signed the defender for £12million (BBC) over the summer having worked with him at Brentford, and he's had to remain patient behind Mings and Bjorn Engels.

With Engels injured, Konsa has now played the last three Premier League games, and Villa fans have been blown away by the 22-year-old's talent.

Fans took to Twitter to hail Konsa, suggested that he was really impressive at Old Trafford and may make it difficult for Engels to get his place back, adding that he is 'unbelievable' and a 'great player', backing him for a great future at Villa Park.
