Ian Wright has been speaking on the latest edition of Match of the Day 2 about all of Sunday&8217;s games, including Aston Villa’s 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion.

1 of 10

First up in this Gareth Barry quiz, which club did Villa sign the midfielder from?

One of the players that Wright had praise for was Emiliano Martinez, who faced four shots on target and made some big saves to keep his side in the game before Keinan Davis snatched an equaliser at the death.

Villa signed Martinez from Arsenal last summer for £15.66m, and he has played 32 Premier League games this season and kept 14 clean sheets.

So, it is safe to say that he has been a great signing for Dean Smith’s side, and Wright was full of praise for the Argentinian.

He said: “Martinez again, another impressive day for him.

“He [went] there to be a number one, he’s brilliant, he’s doing very well for them.

“He went there actually to make sure that he could cement his number-one place in [the] [team].

“He made some very good saves.

“In the end, he’s saved them, made the saves and they got themselves back in the game.

“He’s a very big guy, but he’s done brilliantly for Villa this season.”

Do you think Martinez has been 's best signing?

Yes, he has been brilliant

Yes, he has been brilliant

No, he has been good but others have been better

TIF Thoughts on Martinez…

Martinez, who is valued at £22.5m by Transfermarkt, came to prominence for Arsenal last season during the restart with a string of impressive displays.

He decided to leave the Gunners rather than compete with Bernd Leno, and he has been an inspired signing.

Throughout the season, he has turned in some solid displays for his side, and it is great to see his move has paid off for both him and Villa.

Villa’s season has slightly tailed off as the season has gone on, but one player who has been consistent throughout is Martinez, and he can hold his head up high.
