JACK GREALISH STARTED a Premier League game for the very first time after being named in the Aston Villa team for their crucial clash with QPR.

The Republic of Ireland Under-21 international had made 11 substitute appearances for the top-flight side this season but was afforded a substantial chance to impress by boss Tim Sherwood. He started on the left side of midfield and played 70 minutes before being replaced by Joe Cole.

In what was a crucially important game for Villa, Grealish did well, particularly in the first half and his impressive performance garnered a positive response from many.

The 3-3 draw means Villa move into 16th place and are three points from the drop zone. It will be interesting to see if Grealish keeps his place for Villa’s next game – an away assignment with Tottenham on Saturday.
