Tim Sherwood has backed Jordan Amavi to learn from his mistake which cost Aston Villa a point in Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace.

Amavi coughed up possession in the 87th minute at Selhurst Park, allowing Palace debutant Bakary Sako to secure the points for the hosts with a fine finish.

Earlier Scott Dann’s 71st-minute opener had been cancelled out as Villa new boy Adama Traore – making his bow in English football – saw his cut back deflected into the net by Pape Souare.

Asked about Amavi’s error, Sherwood said: “That’s what you will get with young players, unfortunately.

“Jordan hasn’t made many mistakes since he’s been here. That’s one and he will have to learn from it.

“We have a lot of good young players. We have added a lot of youth to the squad. Unfortunately you will get ups and downs with young players.

“I have been in that boat before, I have seen it. But I know how to develop them.

“He made the wrong choice. But you have to learn. He will – he’s a good player.”

Pressed on substitute forward Traore’s impact, Sherwood added: “You saw a young player who has no fear at all in Traore. He burst forward and lit it up today in a short period.

“I thought it was the right time to put him on. That’s what he is capable of. We know what he possesses. Hopefully those Villa fans can see a lot more of him.

“I will make sure he gets the right opportunities at the right times.”
