Axel Tuanzebe made his first start in an Aston Villa shirt in the Championship game against Fulham on Saturday and fans were over the moon at what they saw.

The young centre-back made a 23-minute cameo appearance in the 3-2 win against Burton but Steve Bruce started him today at right-back and fans will be hoping they see more of him in future games, despite a 2-0 defeat.

The 20-year-old joined from Man United in January on loan for the rest of the season and put in a strong display against a good Fulham team.

He controlled Fulham’s wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon in the first half and looked a real prospect at this level.

He helped keep the score 0-0 at half-time but couldn’t do anything to stop Sessegnon getting the opening goal in the 52nd minute.

Fulham secured the three points with a Floyd Ayite goal in the 71st minute.

Here are the best reactions to Tuanzaebe on his full debut from Aston Villa fans:
