Aston Villa star Jack Grealish has set an unwanted Premier League record this season

Jack Grealish has been on the losing side in all of the 16 Premier League matches he has featured for Aston Villa this season.

Jack Grealish was considered as one of the brightest young talents to have emerged from English football not too long ago and the attacking midfielder even had England and the Republic of Ireland fighting over his selection for their respective national teams.

However, Grealish has not really managed to prove his worth over the past few seasons and poor performances as well as off-field indiscretions have meant that opinion about his capability to become a world-class player has changed dramatically.

Now as a damning indictment of the attacking midfielder’s poor form, it has been revealed by the Daily Mail that the attacking midfielder has been on the losing side for every Premier League game he has featured in his season, setting an unwanted Premier League record along the way.

Grealish made a total of 16 appearances throughout the course of the campaign and Villa were unable to pick up a single point from the matches in which the 20-year-old had featured.

The previous holder of the unwanted record was Sunderland’s Sean Thornton, who lost in all his 11 appearances during the 2002/03 season while Moroccan defender Talal El Karkouri is currently third on the list, losing eight matches for the same Black Cats’ side.
