Pre Season Highlights

While other Premier League clubs wow the media in far off lands, Aston Villa’s on-field pre season has been low-key compared to the major player exodus off it.

While Delph was hissing phoney loyalty and Benteke was completing the most drawn out transfer in Villa history, on the field, Tim Sherwood has been trying to rally his depleted squad into some kind of unit, and having a good look at the youth at his disposal.

Jerrell Sellars

In the second video below are the highlights between what was supposed to be Aston Villa’s Under-21’s vs Forest Green, but the Villa team started with the likes of Libor Kozak, Charles N’Zogbia, Aly Cissokho, Joe Cole, Alexsander Tonev, Kieran Richardson and Nathan Baker in the starting line-up.

On top of seeing the rarity of a Tonev goal (although there’s an example of his standard level of shooting too), the video is worth watching for a brace from Jerrell Sellars, who also scored on his first team debut in the 2-0 friendly win against Swindon the day before. The 19-year-old’s second (5.50 on the video) against Forest Green is certainly a cheeky one.

Jordan Amavi

First though is a video that solely focuses on the contribution of Villa’s new left-back Jordan Amavi. You’ll see straight away his confidence and ease on the ball, plus he looks more useful going forward than any Villa left-back in recent times.
