Photo: Aston Villa's Jack Grealish appears to have picked up an injury in training

Jack Grealish has not made a Premier League start for Aston Villa since January 2nd.

Jack Grealish appears to have picked up an injury in Aston Villa training earlier today, after posting a frustrated message on social media this afternoon.

Grealish posted a picture of his ankle with an ice-pack on it on Twitter, although no words accompanied the photo.

The severity of the problem is as yet unknown, but Grealish’s message suggests that he is very annoyed to have picked up the knock.

Grealish has struggled to show his top form for Villa of late, with Remi Garde not showing as much faith in him as Tim Sherwood.

The youngster was a key part of Sherwood’s first-team, but Grealish has dropped out of contention more recently.

The academy graduate has not made a Premier League appearance since the 2nd January, with Garde preferring other options.

Villa’s next match comes against Liverpool on Sunday, and it remains to be seen whether Grealish will be fit enough to play a part in the contest.
