Aston Villa will have another chance to fight for survival when they welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Villa Park on Sunday in the Premier League.
Jose Mourinho’s side are unbeaten in their last 22 Premier League away games against promoted sides (W18 D4) since a 0-1 loss at QPR in April 2012. And to continue this streak, Jose & Co. will have to nullify a man who alone could lead Villa to three points – Jack Grealish.
Grealish is one of the most anticipated midfielders in the Premier League and Jose Mourinho has big praise for the Englishman as he gears up for a trip away to Villa Park.
Jose on Jack Grealish…
“Very important player for them. Very important.
“They have their way of playing. Maybe they change against us but the normal Villa is with this back five, the midfield players and then Grealish is a player with creative freedom, with an area of action that’s very important of course.
“Very talented, can score a goal, can make an assist, incredible connection with the fans. So easy to feel immediately that he’s one of them.
“He’s capable of making the crowd chase the team. A very important player for them for sure.”
