Aston Villa club captain Jack Grealish has touched on Wednesday evening’s 0-0 draw with Sheffield United on social media platform Twitter.
The Claret and Blue side returned to Premier League action on Wednesday night as they faced a tricky tie against Chris Wilder’s impressive Blades.
The game, which was played behind closed doors, was the first since early March having had the 2019/2020 season postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Villa desperately needed a win, sitting 19th in the league standings, but the tie finished with the points being shared between the two sides. It wasn’t without controversy though, as Oliver Norwood’s free-kick clearly went over the line after an error from Orjan Nyland, only for goalline technology to fail, meaning the Blades were robbed of a goal (BBC Sport).
Grealish, who has captained the club this term has been superb for the most part, contributing to his side’s cause with seven goals and six assists in 27 games.
Touching on the game via his official Twitter account, the former English under-21 international received a reaction from fans. One even said the Villans “dodged a bullet” in reference to the Hawkeye blunder.
Well that was….. weird 😂 Buzzing to be back out there though! A hard earned point which we can now build on 💪🏻 Brilliant to see everyone unite for the Black Lives Matter movement! #AVFC pic.twitter.com/UpbJ9I1AIj
