Paul Robinson has called Morgan Sanson a 'top player' following Aston Villa's 3-1 loss to Chelsea.
Sanson made his first Premier League start since April on Sunday (26th December).
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former England goalkeeper, admitted the 27-year-old has struggled to settle at Villa Park since his arrival back in January.
However, he showed an amazing performance against the Blues, having completed 5 dribbles and 4 successful tackles.
“We got glimpses against Chelsea of what’s to come," Robinson told Football Insider’s Dylan Childs:
“He’s found it hard to settle, it’s been a stop-start time for him at Villa with Covid issues, injuries, game time.
“I think on Sunday we saw little bits of what’s to come. He’s a top player and I don’t think it will take him very long to settle.
“I thought Villa were excellent against Chelsea. They gave them a real run for their money in the first half. They were unlucky.
“The scoreline definitely didn’t reflect the game, in my opinion.”
