A young squad was fielded on the back of a coronavirus outbreak in the first-team squad, with the oldest player in the team being just 21 years old.
Louie Barry brought the two teams level after Sadio Mane’s opener, but tired legs saw the Premier League champions get the better of the hosts’ youth team.
Revan, 20, put in an impressive display for Villa and illustrated that he has the capabilities of putting himself against the very best that the Premier League has to offer.
Per Sofascore, Revan made 14 clearances, three tackles, blocked three shots and won all of his ground duels. This was while playing against the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane – world-class opposition.
Should Dean Smith consider Dominic Revan for first-team football?
Unsurprisingly, supporters were glowing in their praise towards the young Englishman, with some suggesting that he is one to watch for the future.
Fans gush over Revan performance
“Dominic Revan is going to be a really good CB. Can see how he defends from the front & his physicality for his age is very impressive”
“Really impressed with Revan, held his own against world-class forwards”
“Young Dominic Revan has looked so strong and composed – what a shift he’s put in so far”
“Revan looks like he has huge amounts of potential. He’s so composed and intelligent for a player of his age. So much good coming out of this game tonight.”
“Revan is unbelievable”
