Published Add your comment

Aston Villa goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen has praised the impact made by Gary Cahill and the club´s other rookie players pressed into first-team, calling them "the future of the club".

Cahill was given a full Premiership debut in Sunday´s derby with West Brom at Villa Park and quickly made his mark with goal-line clearances to deny Steve Watson and Kevin Campbell a winner for the Baggies. Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor also acquitted himself well in a makeshift midfield role and other Academy players in Steven Davis, Liam Ridgewell and Craig Gardner were also involved.

Sorensen, 29, told PA Sport: "Gary Cahill did tremendously well. He was up against Kevin Campbell and Diomansy Kamara who are very strong in the air, but stood firm and had a few vital blocks as well."
