Did others see it as Grealish tiring and finding less stamina to get up and down the pitch in the last 10 or so minutes if the Bournemouth match.
I observed other players out run him and pass by him with the ball I think Elmo and Jota were two when in possession and getting back up the pitch from villas own half .
Something to keep eye on
He was certainly energetic at times Saturday , on the ball in the opposition half and final third and especially more so second half but observation he was running out of steam
Any thoughts on this from others ?

Come on you Villa boys! 3 points would be great, even a point to get something on the board would be fine, but letís go for the win, and show them whoís boss on our own pitch! UTV!

I'm not sure why certain players such as Targett have been told that they have to earn their spot over the incumbent, whereas as others like Heaton have walked straight into the team.

Changes for me tonight.
Start Trez on the left.
Drop El Ghazi and replace him with Elmo.
Bring in Freddy to play behind Elmo.

I also hope we get to see marvellous on the bench.

Not sure Marvelous is fit - would go for Hourihane myself.

Going for a 2-1 win, more in hope than reality, need to start getting points on the board, settle for a draw, lose this and we've got problems in spite of of just a few games in, this is the Premier League.

I'm surprised at the amount of people who are pushing Jack out to a winger role.  He's our most talented player and will hopefully develop in one of the best No 10's in England.  Do we really want to be fucking around with his position 2 games into the season?

Feeling nervous, which is ridiculous after only 2 games. Will relax, when we're 4 up with 3 minutes left.

Donít be surprised or disappointed if we donít see Guilbert and Targett in the side until Crewe next week. If he puts one or both in tonight then I will be happily surprised but I donít expect it will happen.

Iíd like to see Conor partner Luiz in a 4231 but I donít think Dean will change formation yet either, but he needs to drop AEG and get more support for Wes whatever changes he makes.
