Jack Grealish is surely the best player in the Championship? The 23-year-old runs Dean Smith’s midfield when he’s fit and now he’s even got Borussia Dortmund captain and Germany international Marco Reus trying to recreate his goals. Last night saw Reus try what Grealish pulled off against Derby, yet he just couldn’t match the Villa man.

The Villa fans comments are obviously in jest, but for them all to be tuning and watching one of Europe’s most in-form players try to pull off the same incredible goal that their man managed just a matter of days ago and fail made brilliant viewing. The first-time volley from the edge of the box on a corner is one of the most difficult things to get right in football, yet you’ve got 23-year-old Grealish pulling it off.
The 23-year-old’s absence has been felt hard by the Villains this season so to see him back in the fold and back amongst the goals is special for the fans. The midfielder has scored some special goals for the club and seeing him come back with a bang is something that the fans have been dreaming of over the last few months. All that’s next is to see Grealish score another corker and wait for one of the game’s top stars to fail to match him like Reus did last night.
You can read the Villains’ reaction to seeing Reus fall short of the spectacular here:
Can't believe he thinks he's as good as @JackGrealish1

The Villains loved seeing Reus try and fail to pull off the ‘Grealish volley’ and are now eagerly waiting for the next piece of magic that their midfielder will pull off.
