Aston Villa now boast one of the Premiership's most exciting stars, says manager Martin O'Neill.

Asked about new England hopeful Ashley Young, O'Neill enthused: "We have some fine talent and Young was sensational. When he picks the ball up the crowd are waiting for something to happen now.

"He ended last season really well, played well for the England Under-21s in the summer and has carried that form on. But we have a lot of pace in our side now which can cause the opposition plenty of problems."
