Aston Villa’s summer capture of former Manchester City midfielder Douglas Luiz certainly raised some eyebrows in the fanbase, even if the deal took a while to get over the line given his work permit issues.

Suffice to say, the £15million signing took to the Villa Park pitch on Saturday as we welcomed visitors Bournemouth for our second Premier League clash of the season, and the 21-year-old certainly caught the eye.

Having opened with a glaring mistake as he let the ball ghost by him, presumably thinking a teammate would get it, he definitely grew into the game and fans will be well aware of the excellent strike he hit on the day to restore hope that we would complete the comeback from 2-0 down.

Sadly, it wasn’t to be as we lost 2-1 but there were definitely plenty of positives given how we better controlled the game, and created chances – all that was lacking was a real clinical edge.

Taking to social media to praise Luiz’s performance, fans were certainly happy with the early signs that we saw from the Brazilian.
