Summer capture Orjan Nyland has again made the headlines for the wrong reasons following Aston Villa’s score draw with Ipswich Town at the weekend.

Having been caught out and conceded two goals in the game against Wigan Athletic, the 27-year-old Norwegian international stopper had a rush of blood on Saturday and came for a cross that was never his to claim.

Having completely faffed it, it led to the Portman Road outfit’s equaliser on the day and Nyland left himself wide open to further criticism as fans took to social media to vent their frustrations.

Whilst some reactions were more balanced and pointed out he looked like he was trying too hard to impress and just needed to settle down and keep things simple, others pointed to Sam Johnstone’s start to life at the club which wasn’t exactly stellar either.

Others felt it was proof Steve Bruce had made an error in sending Jed Steer to Charlton Athletic.

I think the truth is probably somewhere in the middle.

I get the impression a clean sheet for this man is going to be massive for his own confidence as he continues settling in.
