Aston Villa coach Kevin MacDonald says their youth system has proved itself with a run to the NextGen quarterfinals.
"Due to financial constraints the players have to develop more quickly rather than the club pay top dollar," he told the Daily Mail. "Players get a chance here and that can help when you are trying to attract young talent to the club.
"We had young Danny Johnson on the bench against Liverpool and Derrick Williams against Arsenal. There's pressure on managers to get results so you have to be careful when you introduce them but they're doing well."
