Great again tonight. What a difference playing him at wing back, him and Jack were telepathic at times. Superb performance from him.

Targett and Jack tore Leicester apart.

Exceptional tonight, best left back/wingback performance by a villa player in years in my opinion. Linked really well with Jack and gave us an outlet but also did a good job keeping Perez and Ricardo pretty quiet. The latter was fucking knackered by the end from the run around he got and that tiredness was why he looked glued to the floor for the winner. Also put in a couple of very good crosses.

As with a few other players I think the pressure and sheer amount of games in a short time got to him and he was strugglnig but a couple of decent performances and the confidence from them and he suddenly looks a different player. I'm really pleased for him, I think he's taken a lot of stick (some pretty unfair at times) so it's great to see him get some credit now.

His best performance for us by a mile and like with pretty much all these youngsters weve signed you can see that there is plenty of ability.
Its so important we stay up this season because apart from the strong financial position to build this squad you also look at these players and know that theyre going to improve with time and persistence.

Hes too slow in a flat back four against real pace, but the new formation gives him license to get forward.

Its a very different player to the one who played against Watford last year. The same can be said about a fair few of them though I suppose. Confidence does wonderful things.

Repeating myself he was really good tonight but what was he doing when Leicester scored?

Best game for Matt so far that was. His understanding with Jack is a real asset we should use more of

Brilliant attacking duo and seem to read each other very well but Targett was at fault for their goal as playing it back he was well positioned but was ball watching and didn't have a clue that player was behind him otherwise by far his best game.

Aside from benefiting from 3 at the back he does look fitter and sharper. Fair play to him

Best game since he joined.
He has toughened up and is so much better for it.

The understanding between him jack is superb, and every single ball jack played to him was perfection.

The pass from jack for the goal was deceptively brilliant. But also, not many players could be relied on to get hold of a ball at that height as well as targett. They are a great combo
