PremierLeague-News.Com - Aston Villa were beaten 2-1 by Leicester City in the Premier League on Sunday with Jack Grealish and Matty Cash big misses for Dean Smith's side
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Aston Villa slipped to a 2-1 defeat against Leicester City with Dean Smith left counting the cost of injuries to Jack Grealish and Matty Cash. Villa lacked a creative edge without their skipper, who missed a Premier League match for the first time since November 2019. Rumours that Grealish would be sidelined emerged online ahead of the game and Dean Smith vowed to get to the bottom of the leak in his post-match press conference. “I was made aware that it came out on social media outlining he wasn't going to play and, if it's coming out of our training ground, I will find out where that's coming from and reprimand who it's coming from,” Smith said.

Ahmed Elmohamady was off the pace having come into the starting XI in place of the injured Cash, the experienced Egyptian struggling to contain the dangerous Harvey Barnes who scored the visitors’ second goal shortly after James Maddison’s opener. Traore pulled one back just after half-time and Smith introduced Trezeguet, Jacob Ramsey and Morgan Sanson but an equaliser proved elusive for Villa.
