Aston Villa will take on Fulham this weekend in the Championship playoff final.
The winner will rise into the Premier League, whilst the loser will spend another season at Championship level.
There is simply no downplaying the importance of the match between two teams that both feel that they should be operating at the highest level of English football.
Jack Grealish should line up in the Villa midfield this weekend, and the 22-year-old, who has recently been linked with Newcastle United, will be looking to add to the three goals and eight assists that he has managed in 33 appearances during the 2017-18 campaign.
Grealish, who is valued at £4.5m by transfermarkt.co.uk, impressed in Villa’s two-legged playoff semi-final with Middlesbrough, and might well have a key role to play on Saturday afternoon.
The Villa fans have been discussing their team’s chances in response to a tweet from Grealish, which was posted earlier this week, and a selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:

Let’s just hope Fulham don’t want to kick you all over the pitch like so many other teams have done this season.
We are all right behind the team.
