Aston Villa: Fans react to Jack Grealish’s display against Manchester City

Aston Villa: Fans react to Jack Grealish’s display against Manchester City -Aston Villa

Aston Villa missed out on a chance to win their first domestic cup since 1996 as Manchester City claimed the Carabao Cup with a 2-1 win.

The Villans deserve credit for their display, however, showing much more fight and quality than the last time they played Pep Guardiola’s side – losing 6-1 at Villa Park in January.

They almost took the game to extra time too when Bjorn Engels’ header hit the post after a Claudio Bravo save, but ultimately the Villa forwards did not produce enough in the final third.

One player who was particularly ineffective was Jack Grealish, and that took some fans by surprise given he has made 17 goal contributions this term.

The skipper was visibly upset after the final whistle, too, with City players going over to console him as he lay on the pitch with his hands across his face.

He will know it was a great chance to lift a trophy with his boyhood club, and time could be running out for him to do that as his future may lie elsewhere amid reported interest from Manchester United.

Some supporters were critical of his display against the Citizens, with suggestions that he didn’t have the same influence as usual.
