Aston Villa enigma Jack Grealish tweets his admiration for Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey

The Welshman scored the opening goal in the North London derby yesterday.

Aston Villa moved a step closer to relegation yesterday as they were turned over with ease by Manchester City at The Etihad.

The 4-0 defeat was a poor show from the Villa players who appeared to have given up on the fixture immediately after half-time.

One man who was missing from proceedings yet again was Jack Grealish.

The talented midfielder has had a tough season for Villa. His behaviour off the pitch has made more headlines then what he does on it in recent months.

Now, as he seems to be knuckling down, he has been struck with a series of injury problems.

But he is still getting inspired by other players whilst resting up. He tweeted this whilst watching the North London derby yesterday, clearly impressed by Arsenal's Welsh international Aaron Ramsey:

Ramsey opened the scoring for Arsenal in the game with a deft flick in the first-half. In the years to come Grealish has the ability to be a player in the Ramsey mould.

Aston Villa will be banking on it, because Grealish is likely to be tasked with leading their fightback from the Football League next season.
