Jack Grealish has posted that the Emirates Stadium is his favourite ground to play at in the Premier League, after Aston Villa’s recent clash with Arsenal.
Grealish’s latest trip to Arsenal ended in disappointment, as his side threw away a 2-1 lead against 10-men to lose the match in the final 10 minutes.
It must still have been an exciting game to be a part of though, with the emotional atmosphere throughout the second half and Grealish providing an assist to give Villa that lead in the first place.
A week after the game, once the emotions of the match had died down a bit, Grealish posted a very complimentary message about the Emirates Stadium on Instagram:
Grealish has previously been to visit the Emirates from the stands, watching them face Bayern from a box seat in 2014. He’s also a fan of Mesut Özil, based on some of his past tweets:
Ozil… What a player!!

Spurs fans won’t be too happy about all the social media posts, given their club pushed hard to sign him last year.
Having just turned 24, Grealish still has a long time left in football, and he’s started the season well despite Villa’s struggles, with two goals and three assists in nine games. Perhaps a move to Arsenal could be in his future.
