Jack Grealish taunts Leeds United with 7-word tweet after Aston Villa win

Jack Grealish taunts Leeds United with a 7-word tweet after his Aston Villa side came away from Elland Road with a win on Saturday evening.

Bielsa’s men suffered a 1-0 defeat as they conceded an early goal from El Ghazi before struggling to break down a stubborn defence from the visiting side.

Grealish couldn’t play in the game as he was injured, though it seems Villa didn’t need their star player, recording a win without their midfielder, who was watching back at home.

After the game, Jack Grealish sent a tweet on his delight at the victory against Leeds, which moved Villa up to 8th in the Premier League table.

“Ahh what a time to be alive,” he said.

Grealish has been a target for many Leeds fans due to the budding rivalry between the two clubs over the last few seasons.

Speaking earlier this year, Grealish admitted he was unsure as to why Leeds fans were among those who gave him the most stick on social media.

“I don’t mind stick off opposition fans at all, it’s usually just off the same fans if I’m honest,” he told Soccer AM.

“It’s Blues fans, West Brom, Wolves and then Leeds for some reason.

“I’m not sure why Leeds fans. I can obviously understand the ones that are close to us and rivals.

“It’s all just banter at the end of the day.”

He added: “I get so much stick on social media from opposition fans when they say I go down too easily, which at times I probably do but that’s just the player I am and the team I’m in at the moment.

“We’re not the biggest possession-based team in the league, sometimes we’re a team that needs to slow the game down.

“It’s part of my game, what I’ve got to do. We’re good from set-pieces. That’s not saying I dive at all. There’s a difference between winning fouls and diving.”

El Ghazi’s early strike earns Aston Villa first Premier League win in three games and Villa win without Jack Grealish in the Premier League for only the fourth time since 2018 to claim first Elland Road win in 21 years.

What the managers said…

Marcelo Bielsa: “In the game we played better than the opponent, we had many minutes of dominance and there were very few where we were dominated.

“In the first half we created more chances than they did, even though they scored. The goal is a chance which wasn’t intentional, a shot in which a player slips became a pass for a player who wasn’t even asking for the ball.

“In the first half we created six chances at goal, a good number, with the dominance more shared. In the second half we were completely dominate but only managed to create one chance.

“It was a game we didn’t deserve to lose, the draw would have been something more logical and, if there had to be a winner, it should have been us.”

Aston Villa‘s Dean Smith: “The players deserve lots of credit. Our game plan came off really well. We made a really good start and got on the front foot early.

“Our intensity levels were certainly a lot better than they were last week. In the first half against Leicester there wasn’t as much intensity as I’d like. Today was a different game.

“We pressed them really well. We probably made it too open at times, but we restricted them to very few chances in the second half. We wanted to play with safety first and we did that.”
