Aston Villa continued their preparations for the new season with a 5-1 win against Walsall on Wednesday night.
Jota and Wesley Moraes both scored doubles for Dean Smith’s side, whilst Jack Grealish was also on the scoresheet.
Villa have now put three straight pre-season wins on the board – following a 3-0 success over Minnesota United and a 1-0 victory away to Shrewsbury Town last weekend.
The team are building towards their Premier League opener against Tottenham Hotspur on August 10th and things are certainly looking promising for the recently promoted side.
During the Walsall match, Villa posted a video of Jota scoring his second of the match, with the attacker dancing past a couple of challenges before finding the back of the net with a cool finish.

And he cost Gardner plus £2 mil. So basically Birmingham paid us to have him. I think we might have got a good deal…

Jota is a Rolls Royce of a player. Glides on the ball and has a superb weight of pass. Just needs good movement ahead of him like any player does. He should get that with us.
