Aston Villa fans were ecstatic over their captain John Terry’s performance in the 2-0 victory against Preston North End on Wednesday night.
The 2-0 victory at Deepdale saw the Villans move up into the play-off places, where they sit in fifth, three points clear of seventh placed Leeds United.
Villa’s goals were provided by James Chester and Robert Snodgrass, as they caused Preston to slump to a third successive defeat.
Terry helped Villa record their second successive clean sheet in the Preston game, after previously helping his side keep Birmingham City from scoring on Sunday.
The 36-year-old joined Aston Villa in the summer after playing 691 games for Chelsea and winning five Premier League titles.
The experienced defender was named captain shortly after his arrival at Villa Park.
So far this season, Terry has made 15 appearances in the Championship, having not been selected for the squad in Villa’s three League Cup games.
In total, the former England captain has helped Aston Villa record seven clean sheets in those 15 league games and even scored a goal to help them beat Fulham.
Fans took to Twitter to show their appreciation for their skipper, and were running out of superlatives to describe his performance – here are some of their best tweets:
John Terry I actually love you. Special mention to Alan Hutton tonight what a performance. Davis is a star #avfc

You can question John Terry's character but you can't question his footballing ability. Unbelievable tonight. #avfc
