Watch: Jack Grealish scores outrageous goal in Villa friendly v West Brom
Aston Villa fans have probably got a feeling of trepidation as much as excitement as the Premier League prepares to return – but this goal from Jack Grealish might settle their nerves a bit.
Villa are second from bottom with 10 games to play, the first of which is their one in hand against Sheffield United at Villa Park next week.
A win would move Dean Smith’s side out of the bottom three, but with Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal to come before the end of the season, they have a real fight on their hands to avoid an instant return to the Championship.
But with Grealish in their team, anything is possible. And in a clip which has only now surfaced, the mercurial midfielder proved he has not lost any of his class during lockdown with a sensational goal in a 2-2 draw against West Brom at the weekend.
It’s certainly got us looking forward to the return of proper football, but it’s also a reminder of what we’ll be losing without supporters – this is a goal that deserved to be celebrated by a packed-out Holte End.
Still, at least in the proper games we’ll get closer TV angles and replays. Sorry about that…
