Chances created from open play

Premier League 2019/20 - English players only

That's just a clue to his importance to Villa, something that's illustrated by the fact he has created almost a quarter of all the chances they have had in the Premier League. By way of comparison, that's a similar level of influence to that which Kevin De Bruyne, statistically the competition's most creative player, is having at his club Manchester City.

Plus of course the latest most fouled data.

he is very very good. if you look at his xG map it's really really good especially considering he's playing for a rubbish team. it would be interesting to see how he would cope at a bigger club with more expectation and competition. he can have a bad game for villa and get away with it but people will jump on him if he goes to manutd and doesn't perform. the lad is very talented but he's also got a history of injuries. if he keeps villa up then great. he could get a move either way somewhere in the summer because he is one of the better performing midfielders in the league and he's english and relatively young at 24.
Report betting_masta January 9, 2020 7:16 PM GMT
it's not really fair to compare him to KDB because KDB is firstly 4 years older and also plays for one of the best teams in the league.

using xG as a metric he's playing better than james maddison this season but then he is 2 years older so he should be.
mount is also not at jack's level yet. dele alli is comparable as he's a year younger than jack and in fairness jack is as good as and better at some things than alli.

grealish is a bit of an anomaly because there aren't many midfielders of his age playing well in the premier league so it's difficult to compare him with anybody  fairly

england have got some creative midfielders: alli,mount, maddison, grealish - the problem is they can't all play, so you have to find a system which suits a couple of them and then pick them. going off on an england tangent here but it's fair cop. mount should be given more time to mature. alli should  go to the euros along with one of maddison or grealish. it comes down to preference and the long-term view. maybe maddison has more of a ceiling than grealish but grealish is definitely a good player.

the fact that there aren't many players to compare him to means he is special
Report betting_masta January 9, 2020 7:18 PM GMT
he is so unlike any other player i've seen, the way he dribbles, assists, scores, working from the left side of a midfield he is so dangerous. england would no doubt play him out of position or use him as a sub where he wouldn't be effective. it's one of those gambles. he's probably good enough but it's about how personnel fit into a system

I recall when he burst onto the scene as a teenager saying to someone, that he'd let fame get to his head and waste his talent.  And I thought I'd been proved right.  He wasn't even a first choice starter and said to be unfit when Steve Bruce took over.  And this I think is the thing with Southgate.  Southgate had him in the U21s when he was barely sble to seal a starting spot in a Championship side.  But he's unrecognisable to that player.  I don't know whether it was underlying injuries, self belief or motivation, but something has sparked him into life and he's just getting better and better.  England are suddenly stacked with exciting attacking midfielders, but he's playing better than any of them currently.  He reminds me so much of Gazza.  Man Utd should sell Pogba and use the money to get him in the Summer.

He was priced out of it at £75m.  Had it been £50-£60 he'd have gone.  2nd most chances created behind De Bruyne last season, just the rest of the forwards were ****.  With a much better team this year let's wait and see.  Already the leading midfielder this season for goal involvement with 6 and a couple of Villa's other goals were effectively created by Grealish

Totally agree with that thelatarps; I'm a big fan, although he did give the ball away quite cheaply a few times last night. Over confident perhaps, but I do like a player who is confident in his own ability and will take the odd risk. Thankfully the give-aways were in or around Wales' penalty area.
