6 assists v 14 goals: The frightening Aston Villa duo that Fulham need to be wary of



The play-off final will take centre stage in the Sky Bet Championship tomorrow afternoon, with Aston Villa taking on Fulham for a place in the Premier League. 

Fulham finished third in the Championship table after 46 fixtures, one place ahead of Villa in fourth.

Slavisa Jokanovic’s side are favourites ahead of the final, but Villa pose a major threat going forward, with Jack Grealish and Albert Adomah amongst their most dangerous players.

We take a look at that duo in our latest FLW Duel, which highlights which of Villa’s key men Fulham need to be wary of.

In Grealish’s 29 appearances this season, he has shone, with his numbers far better than his teammate on the wing.

The 22-year-old has six assists to his name over the course of the season, which is one more than Adomah.

In addition to that, Grealish has produced more average shots and key passes per game (1.9 v 1.5 and 1.9 v 1.2).

The midfielder’s positive play is further highlighted in his 2.9 dribbles per game, with Adomah averaging just 1.4.

Grealish’s average pass success rate stands at 85.8%, with Adomah’s figure at 77.1%.

The one area that the 30-year-old winger has bettered Grealish this season is in the goalscoring department. Adomah has 14 goals to his name, whilst Grealish has just three.

The Verdict

It’s been an outstanding year for Grealish, who is going to be the player Fulham are most worried about tomorrow afternoon.

However, Jokanovic’s side would be foolish to not keep an eye on Adomah, who is a huge goal threat.

The winger has produced moments in big games this season and will be looking to do the same tomorrow.

Together, along with Robert Snodgrass, Adomah and Grealish form a really frightening attacking midfield trio.
