McGinn hails Young as Aston Villa win at Crystal Palace

Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn was delighted to score in victory at Crystal Palace.

Villa were impressive for the 2-0 win.

McGinn later said: "The manager told me if I get in those positions to let rip. I was delighted to help the team.

"I thought we were outstanding in the first half. We defended well in the second half, under a lot of pressure. Not many teams have come here this season and got the three points so I'm delighted.

"Ashley Young is some player. He's brilliant for the changing room. You couldn't tell he was 36 - I need to find out where he got his moisturiser! You could never tell he's 36 out there.

"I'm just going to try and keep learning and if I can anywhere near the level of Steven Gerrard and Patrick Vieira I'll be delighted."
