ASTON VILLA youngster Easah Suliman was a starter in the 3-3 thriller with West Bromwich Albion in the English Premier League 2.
The defender played the full 90 minutes as the Midlands rivals battled it out at Aggborough.
A brace from Saido Berahino and Tahvon Campbell helped the Baggies secure a draw after coming from behind twice.
Suliman returned to Villa Park during the festive period following the end of his loan spell with League Two side Cheltenham Town.
The 19-year-old made five league starts for the Robins, along with four substitute appearances.
He also featured in the EFL Cup, facing Charlton Athletic and Newcastle United as well as coming on as a substitute in the FA Cup with Sutton United.
Suliman recently signed a new contract at Villa until 2019 and will be looking to push for more opportunities to be involved with the first team this year.
