Aston Villa recently announced that Jack Grealish will return from injury against Derby County on March 2, nearly three months after he suffered the initial problem with his shin. The 23-year-old has missed 14 games in all competitions and Villa have managed just two wins during this period – vs Swansea City (December 26, 2018) and Ipswich Town (January 26, 2019).
It’s been a long wait for Grealish to return as Villa’s form has fallen off a cliff. The Midlands outfit are currently 11th in the Championship with 45 points from 34 games this season and haven’t managed a win in their last five – failing to score in three of those games. Dean Smith’s men are eight points adrift of the playoffs with 12 games to play, but Grealish’s return will give everyone a lift.

This is great news, although I hope he is 100% ready as we would not want him injured again, we know how they like to attack him, probs still the most fouled player in the Championship!! #vtid

The England u21 international has made 21 Championship appearances this season, scoring and creating six goals. He’s made 47 chances, 39 successful dribbles and has completed 88% of his 48 passes-per-game on average. Grealish could start on Saturday against Derby and Villa will be favourites to win due to the Rams failing to win their last four away games.
