Aston Villa: These fans want to see Marvelous Nakamba make his debut

Aston Villa play Crewe Alexandra in the Carabao Cup tonight, with many seeing this as an opportunity to play some of the club’s recruits who haven’t got onto the pitch yet.

A selection of Twitter reaction to the question, including posts from single-minded Aston Villa fans, can be seen below:
