Ross Barkley’s first-half goal was enough to earn a vital win for Aston Villa away from home last night.

Dean Smith’s side beat Southampton 1-0 in the Premier League after a controversial VAR decision. Southampton striker Danny Ings had a goal disallowed for offside in stoppage time.

Barkley scored the only goal of the game in the 41st minute. The on-loan Chelsea midfielder headed in from Jack Grealish’s cross for his third league goal of the season.

There were quite a few impressive performances from Villa players, but Emiliano Martinez stood out as a game-changer once again.

The Argentine keeper has been outstanding since his move to Villa Park, and he was the difference between the two sides.

The former Arsenal shot-stopper pulled off some stunning saves to keep his side in the lead. The Villa goalkeeper did well to deny the likes of Che Adams, Jan Bednarek and Ryan Bertrand.

The 28-year-old has been the best keeper in the Premier League this season, and he has helped Aston Villa climb to 8th in the table with 32 points after 19 matches.

Some Villa fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Martinez’s performance, and here is what they had to say.
