Marvelous Nakamba made his competitive debut for Aston Villa in a League Cup tie on Tuesday.

The midfielder was named in the first XI and played the entire ninety minutes as his team went on to beat Crewe 6-1.

Nakamba’s performance in the game was commendable and his figures were not bad, managing an overall rating of 7/10.
