Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish produced a match winning display against rivals Birmingham today.
The 23-year-old was the centre of attention all game. He was attacked by a fan in the first half and then he managed to bag the winner in the second half.
Grealish has been in fantastic form since his return from injury and he will be looking to continue that for the remainder of the season.
If he keeps up this level of performance, Grealish could take Villa to the play-offs this season.
