Emiliano Martínez couldn’t have had a better debut with Aston Villa. The Argentinian goalie stopped Lundstram’s penalty in the first half.
Emiliano Martínez performed well in his first match wearing the Aston Villa shirt. The goalkeeper, who recently arrived from Arsenal, stopped a penalty in the first half.
Although Aston Villa were a man up after Egan’s sending off, Sheffield United were given a penalty after a foul from Targett in the six-yard box.
Lundstram was charged with taking the penalty, but Emi Martínez beautifully predicted the direction of the shot and avoided a 1-0 scoreline.
Arsenal chose Bernd Leno over Emi Martínez, despite the Argentinean’s performances at the end of last season. He had to change teams and became a star from day one at his new club.
