Ollie Watkins has received high praise from Andy Townsend after his goal against Arsenal in the Premier League

After scoring early in the first half on Saturday against Mikel Arteta and Arsenal at Villa Park in the Premier League for Aston Villa, attacker Ollie Watkins has received high praise from Andy Townsend, who was quoted on PremierLeague.com.

Watkins scored for Villa in the fifth minute of the Premier League match against Arsenal, and the former Chelsea star was quite satisfied with his performance.

Townsend, a former star for Villa, has gushed over the attacker, adding that there isn’t a more selfless central striker in the league.

“What a goal, what a brilliant, brilliant goal,” Townsend said about Watkins’s goal.

“When it comes to intent, I can’t think of a League centre forward who is more willing or kind. That run is perfectly timed by him. Aaron Ramsdale had no chance after that brilliant finish,” he added.

Ollie Watkins is a talented attacker despite his rough patch at Aston Villa. We think the 27-year-old attacker is doing well at Villa after his successful tenure at Brentford, where he represented England.

When a club’s management is changed, it does not affect the players. They are impacted by it. And maybe that’s what’s been going on with Watkins lately. But, we believe Watkins would thrive in Unai Emery’s system who was the former head coach of Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain. The onus is on the forward to capitalize on his opportunities.
