Mitchell, who earned 55.4% of fans' vote, earned both his first goal and assist against the Villans, making it a memorable afternoon for the Academy graduate.
Mitchell secured his first professional assist when he swung a clever cross to the near post, where Christian Benteke rose highest to head home the Eagles' first.
Then, minutes from full-time, the left-back found himself just yards from goal and chested home to earn his side all three points.
Post-match, he said: "It’s a dream come true, literally. I’ve been waiting for it my whole life so it’s a real opportunity. Brilliant."
Mitchell beat Eberechi Eze (28.5%) and Benteke (5.1%) to the Man of the Match award. You can see a full breakdown below.
