Aston Villa continued their unbeaten run this afternoon with a 1-1 draw at Leeds United.
In a controversial game at Elland Road which saw Patrick Bamford trick the referee into sending off Villa midfielder Anwar El Ghazi after Matheusz Klich put the home side in front, the temperature inside Elland Road was red hot throughout.
In what was expected to be a bit of a damp squib with both teams having places in the top six confirmed turned into anything but that, as plenty of hard tackles were dished out throughout the game from both sides.
One man in particular who was targeted by the Leeds players it seemed was Jack Grealish, who once again put in decent display despite taking one or two crunching tackles throughout the 90 minutes.
Grealish took to Twitter following the game too to share his thoughts on the game, and it’s clear he had a little smile to himself about the fixture.

With Grealish being such a fan favourite amongst the Villa fans, there was always going to be plenty of comments coming his way following this update.
