Aston Villa teenage sensation Chukwuemeka makes Premier League debut in Tottenham Hotspur win


Anglo-Nigerian teenage sensation, Carney Chwukuemeka made his Premier League debut in Aston Villa’s 2-1 comeback victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday.



Born in Austria to Nigerian parents, Chukwuemeka has developed through the ranks at Aston Villa since he joined the Claret and Blue Army at the age of 12 from Northampton Town.



He signed his professional contract at the club last October and he made Dean Smith’s matchday squad for the first time in February where he was an unused substitute in their 2-1 defeat to Leicester City.



On Wednesday, May 19, the 17-year-old replaced Zimbabwean midfielder Marvelous Nakamba in the 89th minute as Dean Smith’s men ended their three-game winless run in the league.



Sergio Reguilon’s own goal and Ollie Watkins’ match-winning goal, courtesy of an assist from Burkina Faso’s Bertrand Traore, completed the turnaround for Aston Villa at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after Steven Bergwijn’s eight-minute opener for the hosts.



Not far from when he was introduced into the match, Chukwuemeka was close to marking his debut outing in the premier league with a goal but his effort was denied by the post.



Thr Anglo-Nigerian aged 17 years and 211 days became the third-youngest player to play for Aston Villa in the Premier League after Gareth Barry (17y 68d) and Rushian Hepburn-Murphy (16y 198d).
