Grealish, who can play as an attacking midfielder or as a winger, started for Villa against Fulham in London this evening.
The England international scored the opening goal after just four minutes and was a constant problem for the home team’s defence throughout his time on the pitch.
According to WhoScored, Grealish took three shots of which one ended in goal, played two key passes, had a pass accuracy of 74.3%, took 64 touches, attempted three dribbles, and made four tackles and one interception.
Some Villa fans were impressed with the display produced by Grealish and have raved about him on Twitter.
Below are some of the best comments:
Grealish is rapid, because he’s so good in other areas his pace is overlooked #avfc

Strong start to the season
Villa narrowly avoided the dreaded drop to the Championship at the end of last season, and many will expect Dean Smith’s side to fight for survival again in the Premier League this season.
However, the Villans have started the season strongly. Having won 1-0 against Sheffield United in their opening Premier League game, they got the better of Bristol City 3-0 in the Carabao Cup, and now they have eased past Fulham in the league.
