Aston Villa: Captain Jack Grealish out for two weeks after a injury
Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish is anticipated to be out for another two weeks after enduring a misfortune in his comeback from damage. The midfielder has missed seven Head League games with a shin issue, as well as England’s later World Cup qualifying matches.
But Villa manager Dean Smith admitted Grealish had been pushed back “a little bit too quickly”.
“No, he’s not [fit],” said Smith, before Saturday’s game at Liverpool.
“I and Jack were quite optimistic to get him back a bit sooner than he probably should and he’s had a setback that will probably put him back a couple of weeks.”
Grealish has scored six Premier League goals for Villa this season, adding 10 assists.
Smith continued: “He was really good in training, but he couldn’t tolerate the loading. It’s a loading injury and we have to de-load him over the next few weeks and get him back from there.
“We know it’s not a long-term injury and he will be back.
“We all, Jack included, probably pushed him back a little bit too quickly. He wanted to get back, we wanted him to get back and he had a little setback.”
Aston Villa has in a total of 29 games have won 13 of them, lost 11, and has 5 draws. Also, they have played fewer games than the team above in the points table. And in the last 4 games, they are unbeaten so far.
The last time the Red’s Klopp side lost on October 7-2 defeat at Villa Park and the next fixture for the Aston Villa is with Liverpool. Aston Villa would be going forward for the match with confidence as the Reds are not in good spirit as they lost their last game at the Spanish capital against Real Madrid as 3-1. Aston Villa would be hoping to get get some points from the Red’s ones again.
