On-loan Aston Villa ace Lewis Grabban spoke to reporters in the aftermath of his side's hugely important 1-0 win over Leeds United on Friday night, and raved about the quality of Jack Grealish, suggesting that the midfield play-maker is 'on fire', as quoted by the club's official website.

The 22-year-old is currently in the midst of a rich vein of form, and has been instrumental for Steve Bruce's side when he has played this season.

Grealish teed up Grabban for his goal against the Whites on Friday night, and he really seems to have added a cutting edge to his play this term.

The 30-year-old forward, who is currently on loan at Villa Park, spoke to reporters after his side's win over Paul Heckingbottom's men, and offered high words of praise for his young teammate, as quoted by the club's official website:

"Yeh, he's on fire, and doing really well at the moment. He's living up to his potential, and long may it continue."

Although automatic promotion is still mathematically possible, Villa seem destined for the play-offs, and if they are to go up this season, they will need both Grabban and Grealish to be at their very best between now and the end of the season.
