Douglas Luiz certainly endured a mixed full debut for Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon, but his performance on the whole was certainly promising and many supporters appeared to be pleased with what they saw.
Luiz let the ball run through his legs in the build up to Bournemouth’s second goal, but made amends with a stunning strike from the edge of the area to reduced the deficit.
Following the result, Villa’s new signing took to Twitter to share his thoughts.

And many supporters responded to the Tweet to share their thoughts on their new man’s debut.

Luiz certainly looked impressive on his Villa debut, and his goal to halve the deficit was an absolute peach.
He already appears to be a hit with many supporters, and if he can keep scoring crackers like that, he’ll no doubt become a fan favourite before too long.
