Jack Grealish is an English player who features for Aston Villa in the English Premier League. A versatile player, Grealish can be deployed as a winger or attacking midfielder and has taken the free role in some instances. His performances have been applauded by many pundits and he has proven to be one of the best players in the English Premier League and all of Europe as a whole.
After being linked to Manchester United before the season ended, many Manchester United fans were hoping for Aston Villa to be relegated so they get the talent at an affordable price. However, his goal against West Ham on the final day was enough to help to stay on top after the match ended in a 1-1 draw. The season ended with him being the most fouled player in all Europe and played a crucial role in Aston Villa finishing 2nd in the Carabao Cup. This new season, Jack Grealish has taken his game to the next level and is challenging some of the best wingers in Europe despite playing for Aston Villa. He has 10 goal contributions in the EPL with only Harry Kane and Son Heung Min having more. He is joint with Bruno Fernandes all on 10. He has created 7 big chances with only Harry Kane having more. He has 5 assists, with only Kane having more. He has delivered 26 key passes so far, only behind Bruno Fernandes with 27. In yesterday’s match, he showed pure quality despite Aston Villa losing the match. Who can forget the goal he scored outside the box? However, that was not even his best highlight in the match. He created 5 chances in the match and in doing so with a 89% pass accuracy. He completed 8 dribbles and if I forgot to inform you, Jack Grealish is actually the best 1-on-1 dribbler in Europe ahead of the likes of Messi, Neymar and Traore. He won 13 duels in the match.
Some however claim he dives a lot. That however does not take away the fact that Grealish has a shout for being the best player in the EPL so far this season. He has won the most fouls in Europe this season with a margin and whilst some may see it as a dive, I believe it is because of his ability to retain the ball and put it in his legs as he dribble giving defenders no choice than to foul him. It could also have something to do with his calf leg. He has also shown his worth in the national team with 3 MOTM awards in 4 matches. This is to those who say he is only good because he is a big fish in a small pond. Grealish is actually a great player and probably in the top 10 wingers in the world as of now. A player that beats the eye test and has the statistics to back up his performance, England really has a big gem in Jack Grealish.
