What a weekend it was for Aston Villa, who secured a resounding 5-1 victory against Norwich City away from home on Saturday.
Should Jack Grealish be in the England squad?
Dean Smith’s side were outstanding at Carrow Road, and the three points ensured that they climbed out of the relegation zone heading into the international break.
A brace from Brazilian striker Wesley set the West Midlands side on their way, before goals from Jack Grealish, Conor Hourihane and Douglas Luiz added gloss to the scoreline.
Most players were outstanding on the day, but skipper Grealish was receiving plenty of praise for his display on social media following the result.
The 24-year-old was brilliant in the heart of midfield, and as well as his goal he also played five accurate long balls and two key passes, had one successful dribble, made two successful tackles and one interception in a busy 90 minutes (via WhoScored).
As a lifelong Villa fan, he was already a firm favourite amongst the supporters, but performances like this further enhance his reputation with the faithful.
Following the game, Grealish posted on Twitter to express his delight at the result and also praise the fans who made the journey to Norfolk.
In response, plenty of them offered the midfielder plenty of praise for his display on the day. Here is what some of them were saying…
Fantastic goal for you and fab win for you and the boys! Always great to see you on the scoresheet Captain! All Villans are buzzing this evening!! 😘💜💙
