The visitors – who fielded their youngest ever side – were 4-0 down at half time after a Jonathan Kodjia brace, but rallied in the second half and kept Villa out until Wesley’s injury time goal put the seal on the victory.

Critchley told Sky Sports: “I thought we were magnificent. We were fantastic from the start, we had a couple of chances from the first whistle. We were really unfortunate to concede and then find ourselves 2-0 down. It was an incredible night and no-one wanted it to end. The support we had was unbelievable.

“The conduct of the Villa players was first class. For Dean Smith and John Terry to come in to our dressing room after the game and say the things they said… They said ‘keep going, good luck’ and wished us the best. A moment I will remember and the players will remember for the rest of their lives.

“Some of them showed the potential to one day play for us, or in the Premier League. They will know it was just part of their journey. My overwhelming feeling is one of immense pride.”
