The latest international break is here and, with it, a pause in the domestic season around Europe at the highest levels.

The Premier League takes another breather after another entertaining portion of matches and, right now, both ends of the league look tough to call after some unexpected twists and turns.

Aston Villa have been the cause of several, too, with them impressing again at the weekend as they beat Arsenal 3-0 and, at the heart of their start, Jack Grealish is excelling.

We pick out some key numbers with the help of Whoscored.

The headline numbers are that the attacking midfielder, now a man finally on the England scene, has scored four goals so far for Villa and set-up a further five – second highest in the league behind Harry Kane.

He has an assist in his last two matches for Villa, and was also source of five goals – one way or another – in the win over Liverpool.

He’s averaging 3.1 shots per game, 2.7 key passes per game (4th highest in the league) and 2.9 dribbles per game – getting fouled 4.1 times a match on average (highest in the league.)

This only serves to highlight his progressive nature on the pitch and, providing it continues, he’ll likely spearhead Villa to a strong finish this season.
