Aston Villa fans react on Twitter as star man returns

By Amir Mir

Aston Villa fans were pleased to see the return of Jack Grealish to the starting XI, after he missed his sides previous 1-1 draw against Brentford on Wednesday night through injury.

Villa take on Mick McCarthy’s Ipswich side on Saturday afternoon, with Nathan Baker and Jordan Amavi also making a return to the starting XI.

Roberto Di Matteo seemingly opted for a 3-5-2 formation, with Grealish in the hole, a tactical change which pleased supporters as they felt they can now get the best out of their star player.

Fans were looking forward to seeing the 21-year-old in behind Jordan Ayew and Jonathan Kodjia in their visit to Portman Road.

Under-fire Di Matteo will be hoping his side can prevent conceding another late goal, after Nottingham Forest and Brentford snatched late equalisers in their previous two games.
