The 25-year-old midfielder has registered eight Premier League assists so far this season, as well as six goals in all competitions - and continues to play a key role in a revitalised Villa team under Dean Smith in the 2020/21 campaign.

Grealish's ability to pick out a pass is certainly one of his biggest assests, along with his outstanding ability to dribble past opponents with his quick feet and agility. [As well as winning free-kicks]
But perhaps the most underrated parts of his game is his free-kick taking ability.
In a 90 second clip that recently emerged online, the England international casually nets five free-kicks in a row during a training session - making things look way too easy. This is something else.

Grealish has been linked with a move away from Villa after an impressive campaign for club and country - and former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has urged his former club to sign the player at any cost.
The club were linked with the talented midfielder last summer but no official bid was ever announced and Villa kept hold of their captain.
But Ferdinand believes the 25-year-old would be the perfect addition to the attacking riches Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already, as the former defender denied that would mean a surplus of talent at Old Trafford.
"Good players find a way to play together, they figure it out," Ferdinand told his FIVE YouTube channel.
"Can you imagine that team, if you had Scott McTominay holding, Pogba alongside him, maybe a bit higher, Bruno [Fernandes] in the 10, Grealish on the left, Rashford up top and Greenwood on the right?
"Imagine that, I'm licking my lips right now."
