Aston Villa fans absolutely loved Jack Grealish’s performance in derby victory

Aston Villa have boosted their English Championship promotion hopes after a dominant Second City Derby victory over rivals Birmingham City at Villa Park.

The win means that Steve Bruce’s side move up the league table, leapfrogging Derby into the second automatic promotion spot.

After a hard-fought first half, Villa’s quality shone through in the second half with Albert Adomah opening the scoring on the hour mark before Conor Hourihane scored an absolute beauty with just nine minutes remaining.

While they grab the headlines, it was another player who caught supporters’ eyes – midfielder Jack Grealish.

The 22-year-old was in incredible form throughout, dominating the midfield battle and assisting Adomah’s opener. Fans couldn’t help but be in awe of his performance, with many suggesting he was the man of the match by a massive margin.

Can he continue this form and inspire his boyhood heroes to finally return to the English Premier League?
