It was a disappointing summer for Aston Villa as we faced the fallout from last years failure to gain promotion to the Premier League but the arrival of Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens did draw a line under that – as did the arrival of new head coach Dean Smith.

His more immediate impact fell away as our threadbare squad and lack of defensive options came to bite us, but with January strengthening and the return of Jack Grealish seeing our form turn around into a record breaking run of wins at the club, the Play-Offs were ours.

On Monday afternoon we added Derby County to the West Bromwich Albion scalp and I think for many Anwar El Ghazi would’ve been the Man of the Match on the day given his attacking play and selfless tracking back.

Statistics website Whoscored had him in second place in their system, and our Duracell Bunney John McGinn lifted their star man award with a score of 8.08.

El Ghazi picked up 7.86, and the top five on the day were completed by Ahmed Elmohamady (7.49), Tammy Abraham (6.75) and Neil Taylor (6.73).

Plenty won’t agree with the ratings here but who cares, Premier League here we come.

  • El ghazi all day long. The yellow card where he pulled their players shirt was a neat move by them which he foresaw. His goal showed complete passion. He was the game changer. McGinn player of the championship. 20 mil player. Vtid.

    • El Ghazi for me as well chap. Really impressed with his tracking back and the yellow was soft given the tackles we were on the end of.
