The 19-year-old joined Blues on a season-long loan from West Ham and has quickly made an impression in the Championship.

Morrison scored his first senior goal on Saturday, a superb volley against Hull, and McDermott says he has what it takes to cut it with the very best.

"He's a great talent," he said. "I know he's got a reputation but he's a great kid and he wants to do well here. He loves being here and wants to be involved.

"He's got the ability to go right to the top and he will do if he listens to the right people, like the manager and the coaching staff. We've all helped him but we know there's more to come.

"He is thriving on the pressure. He should score more goals with the ability he's got. He scored a fantastic goal Saturday and long may that continue."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
