Jack Grealish played a starring role in the win over Bolton Wanderers on Friday night in the Championship – and some Aston Villa fans on Twitter hailed him afterwards for his performance.
Dean Smith’s side recorded a 2-0 victory at home in the league and they climbed up to 13th in the table.
Grealish opened the scoring on the night after just four minutes and it was his first goal of the season.
The 23-year-old managed to time his run behind the defence and tapped the ball into an empty net after rounding the goalkeeper.
He was instrumental in the decisive second goal too, as he assisted defender James Chester with a lopping free-kick to the back post.
Villa will now be hoping they can string a few positive results together in succession and playmaker Grealish is likely to be key to any push up the league table.
The attacking midfielder receives a lot of criticism most weeks and there is an immense pressure on him to deliver more in front of goal.
A selection of Villa fans were delighted to see Grealish at his best against Bolton and will hope he can hit a purple patch of form.
Here are some of the Villa tweets on Grealish’s latest display:
Very pleased for James Chester last night. Pulled out a performance when needed it most. Openly admitted hasnt been good enough this season but gave a captains performance and then some under the floodlights of a beautiful Villa Park. Jack was majestic again too. #avfc

Give the ball to Grealish in the right area of the pitch and he will cause all teams in this league big problems. Just need to do it more often, he needs to stay away from our own half. Onward & upwards Villa. #avfc
