“He has found the difficulties of being a player because when you go from being a Championship player to a Premier League player, he has found it easy. His weight of pass is as good as anybody I have ever seen.”

It is hard to disagree here, as without his creativity (he averages the most key passes per game in the squad, via Whoscored with 2.7) and his goal contributions, Villa would surely be further from safety than they currently are.

Grealish has received many plaudits for his performances this season after largely leading the attacking charge for his boyhood club amid reported transfer interest from the likes of Manchester United, so Cascarino is right in his assessment here.
