Watkins took his tally to 11 goals in his last 12 appearances, impressing Premier League record goalscorer and Hall of Fame inductee Alan Shearer, who included the Villa striker in his Matchweek 31 Team of the Week.
Bruno Fernandes (MUN)
"The quality of his deliveries was sensational. He ran the game and kept the team ticking."
Julio Enciso (BHA)
"He's had to wait for his chance but it's been worth it. A magnificent strike from the 19-year-old, which has to be a Goal of Season contender."
Ollie Watkins (AVL)
"What a run of form he's on. Another two goals and an assist. He battered Newcastle from start to finish."
Eberechi Eze (CRY)
"Followed up his superb goal at Leeds with another two at Southampton as the Crystal Palace revival continues."
Dominic Solanke (BOU)
"His goal and two assists were vital for three big points at Spurs. Not a bad afternoon's work!"
Manager: Unai Emery (AVL)
"A seventh win in eight matches. It's all clicked into place and he’s got Villa flying now."
