England U-21s are playing a 4-1-3-2 formation with Swift – RAM, Grealish – AM and Onomah – LAM. Very classy display from Grealish, thus far.

I hope Steve Bruce is watching Grealish at the moment for the U21s. Got to find a way to get him at No.10! #avfc

Seems the best way to get the most out of Grealish is to consistently praise him – worked for Tim, now for Boothroyd. #avfc

Grealish stayed at Villa Park in the summer, despite the club suffering relegation to England’s second tier in the last campaign.
He has made 10 appearances for the Midlands side in the Championship scoring two goals and providing one assist with the club currently struggling in the league.
Controversy has also followed Grealish to the Championship after reports stated that the young star was at a party at a Birmingham hotel which had to be shut down by the police in the early morning following other party incidents in the past.
The young prospect is now part of the England national set-up, switching allegiances from the Repubic of Ireland, who he represented at Under-17, 18 and 21 level.
In other Aston Villa team news, Nigel Spink has denied claims he is set to join Steve Bruce at Villa if he is given the managerial job.
