Jordan Amavi completed 90 minutes against Birmingham on Sunday – and Aston Villa fans were thrilled with his performance on Twitter.
Villa earned a 1-1 away draw with their fierce Midlands rivals in the Championship and moved up to 15th in the table with a point.
Gary Gardner gave the visitors the advantage in the first-half with a stunning header, but David Davis scored an equaliser after the break as the teams shared the points.
Steve Bruce has maintained his unbeaten start to his Villa career after four games as the club’s new manager.
Amavi, 22, made his second consecutive league start and is rivalling team-mate Aly Cissoko for a starting position.
Villa supporters were pleased with Amavi’s display against Birmingham and one fan claimed it was his best of the season so far.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
And Amavi is growing by the game, his best performance in a Villa shirt so far today. Fair play. #AVFC

Poor second half but streets ahead of where we were before Bruce took charge. Jedinak and Amavi superb. #AVFC

Villa signed Frenchman Amavi in 2015 from Nice, but he missed large parts of their relegated season through injury
The left-back has made 10 appearances in all competitions and is set to become Bruce’s preferred option at full-back.
He did particularly well to remain calm against Birmingham, with the youngster picking up a yellow card after just three minutes for a fiery challenge.
