Aston Villa: Fans react to Grealish’s continued absence

Aston Villa: Fans react to Grealish’s continued absence - Aston Villa

Many Aston Villa fans have been giving their thoughts on social media after Jack Grealish was ruled out of Friday evening’s fixture against Newcastle United.

Birmingham Live reporter Ashley Preece was one of the first to break the news which Dean Smith confirmed on Thursday morning.

The 25-year-old will miss a fifth successive fixture when Villa travel to St James’ Park, with Smith ‘hopeful’ the club captain will return for the meeting with Tottenham.

Grealish has been suffering from a lower leg issue, however, the Villa boss also revealed that the playmaker has also been absent due to an illness this week.

Will Grealish stay at Villa this summer?





Cash and El Ghazi boost

However, there was some positive news on the injury front ahead of the meeting with Steve Bruce’s side, with Matty Cash and Anwar El Ghazi set to be available.

Cash has missed the last four games with a hamstring issue, whereas El Ghazi missed the goalless draw with Wolves as a result of a bruised toe.

This is what these Villa supporters had to say in regards to Preece’s post on Grealish, though, with one describing his continued absence as ‘annoying’.

“I don’t really know enough but I understand it’s a shin type injury? Would wearing proper shin pads help?”
