Jack Grealish says Aston Villa are “so far away from struggling” in their return to the Premier League.
The Villians recorded a 5-1 win over Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday, pushing them up to 15th on the Premier League table.
Critics still believe Villa will be amongst the teams battling relegation, but Grealish begs to differ.
“The manager told me before the game he wanted me to get a tap in, more than anything,” Grealish told the Birmingham Mail. “I told him after it wasn’t a tap in! It was actually a hard finish at the time.
“I’m so happy to get the goal but the only thing I wanted was the win. It has been coming for a long time.
“I sat down with Christian (Purslow) on Friday night and we had a chat. I was saying how sometimes you see things on social media and people talk about us, saying we are struggling. I think we are so far away from struggling. We have been unreal if anything
“If you look at our games the only one we have struggled with is Spurs, where we should have lost. The rest of the games we have only lost by one goal. To get the win just tops it off.”
