Looks massive inbetween the sticks.  Obviously great P save. But most impressed with claiming of crosses, no fumbles, and distribution. Oozes confidence. Will only get better with familiarity with defence. Few unnecessary headers from defenders when he was claiming and shouting. Seems like a leader too, up to the challenge. To think both keepers today cost the same...hmm

The English premium strikes again.

The one thing missing from Heaton's game was playing with the ball at his feet. Emi is a huge upgrade in that regard, in addition to the fact that he seems better at the other aspects too if that was even possible.

Aye, true that. Tom pulled off some massive saves for us last season. Great shot stopper. But can't play it on the ground like this guy.

Again only one game but if he continues like this it does make you wonder how we pulled this off. (KW gif).  Especially when you look at Chelsea’s keeper.

Indeed. Kepa looks truly shocking. I'm only glad Frank stuck by his blind belief that he is a good keeper, and Martinez was sold a vision by our leadership that persuaded him to take a step down. Looks every bit the gk that Arsenal fans were upset to lose.

Kepa is a disgrace to goalkeeping especially as he is the world record transfer fee and probably wont be beaten for a long time

Anyone want to fact check this one? Crazy if true!

Assuming that TransferMarkt's stats are correct, amazingly it is true! Three GKs have saved penalties for us in the Premier League and kept a clean sheet, however, none of them at Villa Park. Bosnich in a 0-0 draw at Everton in 98/99,  Thomas Sorenson in a 2-0 win at Man City in 06/07 and Brad Guzan in a 1-0 win at Norwich in 13/14.

Funnily enough, it even holds up in the Championship and again with GK doing it away from home, with Nyland in a 1-0 win at Swansea in 18/19.

The headers would be because they are used to playing with a keeper glued to his line.

Dealt with everything, even the nervous parts of play where was passed back to Martinez, he just calmly sorted it out. His penalty save was absolutely terrific and amazing.

I believe Martinez will be for us like Schmeichel was for utd, he will save us points and at early days 20 mill is looking like a bloody steel.

Would not surprise me if Arsenal fans are already going nutz saying *why have we even sold Martinez look how hes playing for Villa* 

Oh they are. There’s plenty of them who think he’s better than Leno

A hero. Glad we got him rather than Romero. There are Arsenal fans that I know are cheering for Villa because of him!

He is Romero. Full name Damián Emiliano Martínez Romero

Someone on here reasonably assumed all the ITKs that said we were in for Romero may have stemmed from this
