Some Leeds United fans rate their side’s chances against Aston Villa next week with Jack Grealish ruled out of the clash.
Grealish has suffered a leg injury and The Athletic report he will miss next weekend’s game at Elland Road.
The Villa talisman missed Sunday’s game against Leicester as his side went two goals down in the first half.
Out of #LUFC game too, then will be assessed.

Dean Smith’s side don’t look anywhere near as dangerous without Grealish and this can only be good news for us.
In the game against Leicester, they created very little which bodes well for our leaky defence.
Illan Meslier could have a much quieter game than originally anticipated and this will do the world of good to our under-fire stopper.
We need a win after the frustrating loss to Wolves on Friday and taking on a much weaker Villa side than usual will be a big boost.
Some Leeds fans went as far as to say Villa looked like a pub team without Grealish in the side while others spoke of how important his loss will be as we hunt a positive result against the Birmingham outfit.
Here is how some Leeds fans reacted to the Grealish news and Villa’s performance without him.

Watching villa here, they clearly have no idea what to do without grealish in their side. No creative outlet to feed the front men. Im hoping he doesn't play against us next week as i can see us easily beating them without him #lufc #AVLLEI

#avfc without Grealish look like relegation material. One man team.

There is no doubt that losing Grealish is a blow to Villa and a boost to us but the Villains are still a well-drilled side and we will have to work hard for a win next weekend.
