Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to Jack Grealish performance v West Ham

The Republic of Ireland youth international was in terrific form yesterday.

There is no doubt that Aston Villa have a really big talent on their hands in the form of Jack Grealish. The Irish youngster, who is wanted by England for international duty in the future, has caught the imagination of Villa fans in recent weeks. With his trademark haircut and pulled down socks, he is certainly an iconic young figure.

His performance against West Ham yesterday however was perhaps his best yet in a Villa shirt.

He was outstanding throughout the game, leading West Ham players a merry dance for much of the fixture.

It was he who found his way through a maze of Hammers defenders before squaring for Tom Cleverley to give Villa their one and only goal of the game in a 1-0 win.

It is not just his magnificent dribbling ability that catches the eye, but he has a fantastic eye for a pass as well - which has Villa fans purring.

The club are now looking like climbing away from the relegation zone with this result and Grealish has been integral to their excellent recent form.

Here is what fans thought about his performance v West Ham yesterday, via Twitter.
