Aston Villa were held to a goalless draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League last night.
The home side have struggled to create chances in the absence of Jack Grealish and Dean Smith will be desperate for his star midfielder to return to action soon.
Grealish is currently sidelined with an injury, and Villa have suffered in his absence in recent weeks.
Despite the poor attacking performance, the defenders managed to step up and impress the fans last night.
23-year-old Ezri Konsa was outstanding for Villa at the back and helped his side keep a clean sheet.
Konsa has been one of the best players at the club this season, and if he continues to perform at this level he could book a place in the England squad for the European Championships.
There is no doubt that the 23-year-old has been one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League this season, and he deserves a chance at international level.
As for Villa, they will be desperate to get back to winning ways, and Smith will have to get his attackers firing on all cylinders again.
They have looked bereft of ideas going forward in recent weeks and need to find a way to improve in the final third.
Some Villa fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Konsa’s performance, and here is what they had to say.
Ezri Konsa is England’s best CB on current form, lad is an absolute monster
