Video: Traoré looks great but Grealish and Gil steal the spotlight

The first highlights of Adama Traoré in a Villa shirt have emerged, with highlights of this week's U-21 game against Derby which the Villans won 1-0. It was an impressive performance from the former Barcelona teenager, as he dribbled past three men with his first touch and continued in similar vein throughout the match. .

However it may be Jack Grealish and Carles Gil who most excite Villa fans, as their slick passing combined with Traoré's dribbles to get the win, with Grealish scoring the goal.

Traoré may need to work on his instinct on when to pass the ball, but his attacking drive looks amazing. Meanwhile Gil and Grealish's clever play was exactly the kind of attacking link-up that was lacking in the match against Manchester United and their return to the squad from injury will be a huge boost.

Let us know what you think - who are you most excited by? And who do you want to see starting against Crystal Palace on Saturday?
