Steer In Team Of The Round (12/8/17)
Aston Villa are represented in the latest League Cup team of the round that has been selected after this week's action.
The performance by Jed Steer in the first round tie between Colchester United and Aston Villa was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other most impressive performers in the League Cup competition.
I think we'll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why Steer was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice - the EFL Cup blurb read.
'Making his first Villa appearance for more than two years, Steer saved an early penalty and produced a string of saves, earning Man of the Match as his side edged past Colchester United.'
It's always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Steer for his recognition, but the most important thing was of course the win.
Jed Steer (Aston Villa), Nathan Baker (Bristol City), Mark Ellis (Carlisle United), Denis Odoi (Fulham), Mauro Vilhete (Barnet), Samu Saiz (Leeds United), James Maddison (Norwich City), Billy Bodin (Bristol Rovers), Mohamed Eisa (Cheltenham Town), Che Adams (Birmingham City), Shawn McCoulsky (Newport County).
