Liverpool’s younger contingent dominated possession and out-shot Dean Smith’s side despite the one-sided scoreline.

Nyland had only made one senior appearance prior to Villa’s midweek victory, when he came on as a substitute in their 2-1 defeat at Wolves in November.

However, the Norwegian ‘keeper made eight saves, while he was named as the game’s best player by achieving the highest rating of any player by WhoScored.

Fans appeared to be in agreement by lauding the goalkeeper for his performance after helping to secure Villa’s place in the semi-finals, with supporters offering plenty of kind words following the 29-year-old’s display.
