Aston Villa: Fans not impressed with Gareth Southgate’s Jack Grealish approach

Loads of Aston Villa fans are not happy with England boss Gareth Southgate and his approach regarding Jack Grealish’s potential Three Lions call-up.

According to The Athletic, Southgate has watched Grealish live and through videos and has also been in touch with the Villa captain, telling him he is firmly in his thinking. That has not gone down well on Twitter, with several supporters suggesting that he should already be in the team.

And looking at statistics from this season, they are not wrong. Grealish is currently outperforming some of his English midfield rivals in various areas. Scoring seven goals and providing five assists in the Premier League, he has more goal contributions than the likes of Mason Mount (seven) and James Maddison (nine).

When it comes to dribbles made per game, the 24-year-old also comes out on top. He is averaging 2.3, which is more than Mount’s 1.1 and Maddison’s 1.7 (via WhoScored). When you take all of that into account, calling up Grealish to the England squad should be a no-brainer.
