Aston Villa: Fans react to praise for defender Matt Targett

Aston Villa: Fans react to praise for defender Matt Targett - Aston Villa

Aston Villa have had a very strong start to the season as they currently sit sixth. They have picked up huge wins against Liverpool, Arsenal and Leicester.

Players like Jack Grealish have been receiving a lot of praise. However, journalist Ashley Preece has been raving over another key part of Dean Smith’s machine – defender Matt Targett.

Preece said that the ‘understated’ left-back should be given ‘credit where it’s due’, via @AVFC_News and he definitely has a point. In his seven Premier league appearances this season, the 25 year-old has managed 1.1 tackles, 1.3 interceptions and 2.3 clearances a game (WhoScored).

He has been slated by some of the fan base at times this season, but he has definitely been a vital cog in helping Villa achieve such a good start to the campaign.

With the flying full-back still quite young and performing to a very good level in the division this season, there is no doubt that he can continue to grow into an even better defender as the campaign progresses.

Here is what fans said following the praise for the Aston Villa player:
