Jack Grealish posted on Twitter after Aston Villa failed to hold onto a 1-0 lead against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon, as Spurs came roaring back to win – and Tottenham fans replied to Grealish’s Tweet.
Grealish, 23, saw out the entire 90 minutes as Villa took the lead through midfielder John McGinn. Spurs struggled to cope with Villa, with the newly-promoted side defending well.
But in the second half, Spurs earned all three points. New signing Tanguy Ndombele scored a superb equaliser, before the ever-dependant Harry Kane notched a brace to rid himself of his August Premier League voodoo.
Grealish has been long linked with a move to Tottenham, narrowly missing out on a move to north London 12 months ago – as per the Daily Mirror, but a £25million did not materialise. The Villa skipper posted on Twitter.

Plenty of new Villa signings impressed alongside Grealish, with Trezeguet, Wesley and Tom Heaton arguably being the best of the new recruits that made their debut. Dean Smith will be hoping his side put it right on Saturday.
They take on Bournemouth at home, as they look to pick up their first win of the campaign. Following last summer’s link with Grealish, Tottenham fans replied to Grealish’s Tweet – heaping huge praise on the Villa skipper.
As a Spurs fan I thought you played well as an individual and as a team. Good luck for the season ahead.

Have to say played very well all game and always a threat going forward, especially on the counter. Good luck for the rest of the season and have no doubt you will stay up….. (Spurs fan)

You are a great player Jack but you have to clear your lines and not mess about in your penalty area. Also when you joining Tottenham Hotspur? Jan2020?
