Aston Villa fans divided on whether Jack Grealish should start against Sunderland

Aston Villa will look to maintain their push for automatic promotion to the Premier League when they face Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Tuesday night, and Villa fans are divided on whether returning midfielder Jack Grealish, rated at £4.5m according to Transfermarkt, should start on Wearside.

The Midlands outfit currently lie four points behind second-place Cardiff City, and they missed out on the chance to close the gap to the Bluebirds when their game against Queens Park Rangers at Villa Park on Saturday was postponed because of the bad weather.

Steve Bruce’s side will get another opportunity to do that against the bottom-of-the-table Mackems however, with 22-year-old Grealish fit to play again after recovering from a calf injury he suffered last month.

Aston Villa supporters have been quick to have their say on his possible participation via social media, and they are divided with their opinions.

While one said “wouldn’t risk Grealish back if he’s not 100%”, another said “if Jack is fit he comes straight back in”.
