According to The Sun, Aston Villa skipper Jack Grealish will miss his side’s clash with Liverpool at Anfield and is set to be out for the rest of April. The England international was widely expected to return to action last weekend against Fulham having missed their last six Premier League games due to a shin injury. However, the Villa star felt discomfort in the shin again, and the club medical team has advised him to spend the next three weeks on the sidelines in order to fully recover.
As a result, Grealish is likely to miss the games against Manchester City and West Bromwich Albion later this month, with Villa’s trip to Everton on May 1 identified as the most probable date for his return. Dean Smith’s side have won just twice in his absence, losing thrice and drawing the other two, and they will be hoping to have him around for the last six games of the campaign. Villa are currently ninth in the table with nine games to go, and they face the Toffees twice, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea in what is expected to be a very tricky run-in.
