While Manchester United players are getting ready for their holidays, our loan star, Axel Tuanzebe, is heading to Wembley with Aston Villa.
Aston Villa defeated West Brom on penalties in the playoff semifinal last night to book their place in the final at Wembley with a single Premier League spot at stake.
Axel Tuanzebe started for the away side and was one of the best players on the pitch yet again, like he has been for the past few months at Aston Villa.
The 21-year-old made a slow start at his loan club but lately, Axel has been the brightest spark in the Villa’s back line, thanks to some incredible performances.
Manchester United fans, of course, have been keeping an eye on Tuanzebe’s time at Villa and here’s how they reacted after his performance last night:

It might sound crazy here but I'd like to see the partnership of Tuanzebe and Lindelof. Totally worth a shot. #MUFC

Every player makes mistakes, young & old, just like in life in general, u will make mistakes in your football career, the less the better of course but its how he reacts that is important. Axel deserves chance show what he can do for us IMO & is upgrade on some options we have!

Needs to be given a chance. Not like all of our CB’s have never made a mistake 😂😂😂
He’s young and will learn

Once Ole got the job he should have called back Tuanzebe and sent Jones, Young & Smalling home. #MUFC

He’s good on the ball, not so good in the air, very fast and doesn’t panic. Better than the chuckle brothers Smalling & Jones already.

Axel Tuanzebe really does look like a composed centre half. Physical, Athletic and good with the ball at his feet!
Get him back to #mufc

Out of all the Manchester United players, who would have thought it would be Axel Tuanzebe heading to Wembley to play a final?
Manchester United are in a need of a reliable center back alongside Victor Lindelof. We have been linked to big names like Koulibaly and Varane but it would very difficult to prize away those big stars in the absence of the Champions League Football.
Could Axel Tuanzebe actually be the answer to our problems at the back?
