Jack Grealish returned to the Aston Villa starting XI to face Barnsley on Tuesday night- and supporters were pleased to see the return of their star player.
The 21-year-old midfielder had been suspended by the club following an alleged all-night party after the Ipswich stalemate.
His return to the line-up pleased supporters, with one backing him to be the match winner at Oakwell following his antics last week.
Another fan was surprised manager Roberto Di Matteo put the youngster straight back in the team, considering the Italian has the returning Ross McCormack on the bench.
But overall supporters were pleased to see the return of the club’s academy graduate, who has scored two goals this term.
Here is a selection of message from Aston Villa fans on Twitter reacting to the team news:

Villa drew their previous league encounter 1-1 against Rafa Benitez’ Newcastle, with midfielder Aaron Tshibola scoring a late equaliser.
The Midlands club are 17th in the Championship table, with nine points from their opening nine games, having recorded a league high of six draws.
Reports within the media have suggested Di Matteo has two games to save his job, with the Italian picking up only one win in nine games this term.
