Jack Grealish starts for Aston Villa against Cardiff on Saturday afternoon – and fans on Twitter are pleased with his selection.
The 21-year-old, who was a second-half substitute in the 1-1 draw at Brighton last Friday, impressed during his 23 minute cameo appearance.
Now, the versatile attacker will be hoping to guide Steve Bruce’s side to three wins on the bounce on home soil as Villa have not lost a league game in six fixtures.
One fan was hoping that Grealish can replicate the impressive form he showed at the Amex Stadium, where he caused the Seagulls defence a number of problems from the middle of the park.
Additionally, another supporter backed the England under-21 international to get on the scoresheet, alongside the in-form forward Jonathan Kodjia.
However, one person felt that Villa were a bit lightweight in midfield, with Grealish set to play behind the striker.

Grealish has played 13 Championship and EFL Cup games for Villa this term, scoring two goals and providing three assists.
Villa are 15th in the Championship table with 22 points from 17 games, five points off the play-offs going into the weekend fixtures.
Bruce’s side are also the only team in the second tier who have not lost a league game at home this season.
