Some Arsenal fans on Twitter have been impressed by Emiliano Martinez’s latest performance for Aston Villa.

The Gunners sold the Argentine goalkeeper to Dean Smith’s team in a £ 20 million deal in September.

It was a very controversial decision at the time by virtue of the fact that Martinez had played a huge role in helping Arsenal win an FA Cup title in the absence of the injured Bernd Leno.

In fact, he was arguably the North Londoners’ best player during Project Restart, but Mikel Arteta decided that Leno would claim the number one spot for this season, prompting Martinez to leave.

But it certainly worked out well for the 28-year-old, who caused a storm for Aston Villa in a 0-0 draw at Brighton & Hove Albion last night.

He was by far the Villans’ best player for 90 minutes and ended up being the one who made the difference, as he was so many times with Arsenal last season.

This was Martinez’s twelfth clean sheet of the season and in contrast, Leno received a direct red card in his most recent appearance for the Emirates Stadium team.

It’s been a very mixed season for the German and here’s how Arsenal fans reacted to Martinez’s performance for Villa last night:
