Smith applauds Nakamba’s performance against Chelsea

Aston Villa coach Dean Smith has praised Marvelous Nakamba’s performance in their defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last night.

Nakamba returned to the Birmingham-based outfit’s starting eleven after missing the last two games and fared well in a star-studded Chelsea midfield comprising of N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic.

He made five successful tackles, three clearances, three interceptions and a successful pass rate of 92 percent, leaving Smith impressed.

“I thought Naka had a really good performance, he broke things up and used the ball well.” Smith told the club’s website.
