Fantastic shot stopper. Hes kept himself in good shape and brings huge experience to the side. He was a bit let down by the defence after saving the Penalty. Will be worth a couple of points at least on the run-in.

He's clearly superb, having him and Heaton for the next couple of seasons would be brilliant although i'm not sure how you'd keep them both happy.
Villa win the League Cup gain entry into the Europa League = plenty of games for Reina and Heaton. Sorted.

I am not or wasn't at all sure about Reina starting ahead of Nyland. My view was that he is ok to sit on bench after Heaton's injury but we should stick with the youngster. However I was very impressed with his distribution and defence management at corners and free kicks. His distribution was the bedrock of most of our effective attacks.

Did he sign an 18month deal?

The man with the model looks deserves his chance between the sticks against City.

Definitely Nyland for the final. Two good saves from Reina yesterday, but otherwise terrible.

Dreadful yesterday. Seemed like Mings and himself had met just before the game.

Think Reina has been good apart from yesterday. And everyone was rubbish yesterday.

I wondered if his tending to distribute via shortish kicks (very badly) was him trying to keep it away from Hause and Konsa who can't play out of defence.

McGinn is injured, and a bit small IMHO.
