Despite going 1-0 down to the Londoners after 61 minutes, Dean Smith’s side managed to show tremendous character and fought back to grind out all three points eventually.
Heavily criticised Egyptian winger Trezeguet turned out to be the match-winner with his defining brace in the second half.
The 26-year-old came on as a substitute after the hour mark and scored twice in three minutes to give Aston Villa the lead.
Last night’s performance will have given Trezeguet some much-needed confidence boost and it will be interesting to see if he can finish the season strongly.
The winger could have easily completed his hat trick yesterday but he spurned a glorious headed opportunity at the back post around the 76th-minute mark.
Trezeguet showed a similar upturn in form towards the end of last season as well and the fans will be hoping for more of the same in the coming weeks.
Villa have been overly reliant on the likes of Ollie Watkins and Jack Grealish this season and they could use another attacker stepping up and chipping in with goals and assists.
Some of the Aston Villa fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the 26-year-old’s performance yesterday and here is what they had to say.

Trezeguet see’s the end of season in sight and turns into prime Ronaldo. #avfc

Trezeguet with two quality goals, and Davis provided a superb assist to turn the game on its head.
Pleased to see subs actually make an impact on a game, especially from two lads who always work hard. 👏👏 pic.twitter.com/dEzGS1RNvu
