Alan Hutton admitted he was stunned Trezeguet had not scored for Aston Villa this season before his brace against Fulham.
The former Villa defender, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, lauded the 26-year-old for taking his opportunity in Jack Grealish’s absence on Sunday.
The Egypt international came off the bench just after the hour mark to help Villa come from 1-0 down to win 3-1.

They were his first goals since the 1-0 win over Arsenal in the penultimate game of last season.
He has made 20 league appearances this term, although only 11 of those have come among the starting XI.
Hutton admitted he was gobsmacked to read the 48-cap international had not found the back of the net at all this term.
