One of the big topics of conversation to come out of Aston Villa’s defeat last Sunday to Leicester City was the form of key midfielder John McGinn.

There’s been a belief in recent matches that our little Scottish Meatball hasn’t been at his best in midfield, and fans seem happy to blame that on a natural dip that all players go through, Jack Grealish’s more left move on the pitch and a whole host of other things.

Not least, his new contract and the potential that with the previous speculation about a move away, that maybe he’s been unsettled by it.

Whatever ‘explanation’ individual fans prefer to side with, there’s no doubting we’ve seen better from the 25-year-old but not living up to his own standards doesn’t necessarily mean he’s been poor and statistics website Whoscored still had him as our fourth best player from the weekend.

One shot, one key pass, 88.2% pass accuracy, third most touches (57) and he continued to be involved at both ends of the pitch, but plenty feel head coach Dean Smith should give him a rest as we face Sheffield United this weekend.

Does McGinn Need A Break?

Yes, It Won't Hurt

No, Let Him Find His Form Again
