I'd prefer Watkins' pace up against those cloggers, he'll run them ragged.

I think his first touch has let him down once or twice, but that's pretty much my only criticism, other than needing to hold his run for a nanosecond longer so as not to be offside again.

It let him down against Palace and AEG smashed a ball into the net at 1000mph from the lay off. But otherwise he has been very good and rarely loses possession in key areas.

Im sure it was a measured pass.

the pass to AEG was fine it was his initial touch that let him down from Jack's pass and stopped him from having the chance himself.

Once or twice, yes. But still loads of energy, and great movement with a tidy finish for his goal. Love what he brings.

I think the first half was his best 45 since Liverpool at home.

Nah, his best game since was against Palace IMO

He'll be disappointed in missing his 1-on-1 with Pope, especially given how significant the miss ended up being, but he was still pretty good last night.  He's still going to make mistakes, because he's still learning at this level, and let's not forget players in his position that rarely make any mistakes cost 100m+.

He took his goal really well, and yes, he should have had another, but he certainly looks like he could get 20 goals this season if he stays fit.

15+ league goals would be great. 20, first since Benteke (or Withe?) would be amazeballs.

That's 8 on the season and 2 in 2.  He's been denied by the woodwork 4 times and by VAR 3 times.  He can pass, he can shoot 45% on target and he is strong and quick...

If you are talking league goals, then Withe.

We're Aston Villa -- anything below the top flight is an abomination and doesn't count.  It's against teams of the quality of Small Heath, after all.
