Aston Villa Under-18's beat Everton 1-0 on Friday night.

Aston Villa Under-18's made it through to the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup on Friday night, defeating Everton 1-0 at Goodison Park.

Villa's next generation of young talent underlined their quality with a last-gasp winner over Everton, as forward Rushian Hepburn-Murphy - who was brought in to the first-team setup by Tim Sherwood last season - headed Villa in to the next round.

Other notable youngsters such as Easah Suliman, Andre Green and Viktor Johansson all started the game, and will be pleased with their efforts having sent Villa through.

After the game, Aston Villa first-team star Jack Grealish - who came up through the ranks at Villa Park - took to Twitter in order to give his reaction.

The 20-year-old playmaker labelled Villa Under-18's victory a 'great result', whilst he also congratulated forward Hepburn-Murphy for his winning goal.

Having seen players such as Ciaran Clark, Gabriel Agbonlahor, Gary Cahill, Marc Albrighton and Andreas Weimann emerge from the youth setup in recent years, Villa will be hoping that they can develop a new crop of young talent.

Grealish looks like being the spearhead of that potential revolution, but Hepburn-Murphy looks like joining him if his current form for the Under-18's continues.
