Jack Grealish leads the Premier League in fouls won this season

Aston Villa have returned to the Premier League and might stave off relegation.

The Villans could have had more than four points from five games had some decisions gone their way, but it is something to build on for the rest of the season.

Villa should have taken advantage of their numerical advantage in the previous game against West ham, but were unable to muster the game-winning goal.

The Villans have quality players in their team, with Wesley looking a handful and Tom Heaton doing the business in between the sticks.

However, the man with all the hype in the midfield is Jack Grealish. The 24-year-old has also been unlucky with some decisions not going his way this season, but the youngster is the king of winning free-kicks.

He led the Championship last season

The Sky Sports tweet highlighted that Grealish is tied with Wilfried Zaha on 18 fouls won this season, and it is a bit surprising to see the midfielder there.

Zaha is fouled often given that he plays in the final third of the pitch, while Grealish wins most of his fouls from the middle of the park.

The 24-year-old Villa star also led the Championship with most fouls won last season, and was 45 fouls ahead of his nearest rival, Harry Wilson.

Villa’s hopes of remaining in the Premier League will depend on Grealish’s performances, and taking advantage of such free-kicks could be one way to get more points on the board.
