Villa’s “Egyptian King” Puts Himself In The Record Books With Fantastic Fulham Impact


Sunday’s Premier League clash with Fulham at Villa Park more than turned into the proverbial rollercoaster ride for Aston Villa fans.

Having struggled for form and consistency in results since we ticked into the New Year, that simply continued and we were woeful for the majority of the game. The visitors were on top and although we weren’t in that much trouble, a weak back pass from Tyrone Mings saw the mistake punished as they gave themselves the advantage and it looked like we were sunk until head coach Dean Smith truly gambled and changed things up.

With under 30 minutes remaining in the tie, on came Trezeguet, Keinan Davis and finally Jacob Ramsey and slowly but surely, it did the trick, we were in the ascendancy and Trez finally had his shooting boots on as he helped himself to a brace, before Ollie Watkins got himself back on the scoresheet.

Completely buried with no hope, to then running out as comfortable 3-1 victors.

The emotions were definitely exhausted after that and with plenty of praise going in Trez’s direction given the impact he had, he’s also written himself into our history books as he becomes only the third Premier League substitute of ours to score twice in a single game.

Julian Joachim was second back in September 2000 (Derby County), with Dwight Yorke first in May 1994 (Liverpool).

Hopefully, it’ll be the perfect shot of confidence we need as we head into a very tricky game with Liverpool next, as we know they’ll be out for some revenge after the early season embarrassment.
