West Ham's big summer signing Julien Faubert was impressed in last night's reserves clash with Aston Villa.

Faubert made his return to action following a serious Achilles injury and scored within a minute for West Ham reserves against Aston Villa.

The France winger took just 39 seconds to open the scoring at Walsall's Bescot Stadium before getting substituted at the interval.

Villa won the match 2-1 with late goals from Barry Bannan and Tobias Mikaelsson.
