Aston Villa youngster Jack Grealish’s performance against Liverpool on Sunday impressed a number of onlookers.
The 19-year-old attacker started the FA Cup semi-final tie at London’s Wembley Stadium and was a constant menace to the Liverpool defence.
The teenager was quick and good in possession, and was always looking to create chances for his teammates.
Grealish’s display during the 84 minutes he was on the pitch played a key role in Villa winning the tie 2-1 and progressing to the final.
Among those who was left impressed with the youngster was former Villa striker Stan Collymore, 19-year-old Newcastle United winger Rolando Aarons and ex-Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann.
