Aston Villa star man Jack Grealish tends to split opinion among football supporters across the Premier League.
The attacking midfielder is an influential figure who has the ability to turn a game in his side’s favour, whatever the scenario.
Grealish has shown his fondness for Arsenal in the past when he tweeted about Mesut Ozil in 2014, saying ‘what a player.’
So Gunners fans will not be surprised that Grealish previously posted on his Instagram story, with some more nice words about Arsenal.

Following a previous Premier League clash between the two sides at the Emirates Stadium, the 25-year-old posted a picture of him in action, with the caption: “Pleasure to play at this place.
“My favourite stadium in the Prem.”
Whether he is touting for a move to north London in the future remains to be seen, but Arsenal fans will be delighted to hear Grealish’s comments about their own ground.
