‘Involved in everything’ The two Aston Villa players who stood out at Norwich City
Aston Villa hero Alan Hutton praised his old teammates Conor Hourihane and Jack Grealish for their roles in the 5-1 rout at Norwich City on Saturday.
Dean Smith’s side recorded their first Premier League win since a 2-0 defeat of Everton at Villa Park in August and moved up to 15th place in the League to allay any early relegation fears.
Hourihane was making consecutive starts for the first time this season having taken his chance against Burnley last week and put in another strong showing, netting a goal and assisting Wesley’s first of a brace.

Grealish netted his first goal of the season to end his drought and Hutton, who left Villa Park in the summer, praised the Villa captain and says he is improving as the weeks go by.
“At first, I thought after sixty minutes, Conor Hourihane, I thought he was brilliant, Wesley obviously scored, Jack stepped up again and I think he is getting better and he scored,” Hutton told Football Insider.
“I’m probably going to lean towards Jack as he was involved in everything, even though Conor set-up a goal, got a penalty and scored, I mean it’s really difficult, but between Jack and Conor.”
