Aston Villa suffered a defeat away to Burnley on Wednesday evening – but some of the club’s fans on Twitter were still left praising their captain Jack Grealish for his performance.
Villa were beaten 3-2 at Turf Moor in their Premier League encounter with Burnley.
Despite dominating the ball with 61 per cent possession, Dean Smith’s side were eventually on the wrong end of a 3-2 scoreline after playing some eye-catching football.
In-form Villa striker Ollie Watkins put the visitors ahead, before Ben Mee equalised shortly after half-time.
Grealish restored Villa’s lead with a stretched finish in the penalty box, but Burnley snatched the three points courtesy of quick-fire goals from Dwight McNeil and Chris Wood.
A selection of Villa supporters on social media did feel that Grealish deserved credit despite his side’s loss.
The 25-year-old attacker was once again instrumental going forward for his side.
The England international got on the scoresheet to continue his fine form in front of goal, plus he provided a memorable piece of skill where he dribbled from the the halfway line to the edge of the box.
He’s now managed managed seven goals and 10 assists in 19 games across all competitions this season.
Here are some Villa fans discussing Grealish:

Grealish puts on a clinic nearly every game he plays. Sublime player. Best I've seen in a Villa shirt. #avfc
