An obvious starting point for many who dabbled their toe in Championship football last season, but Villa midfielder Grealish could be a must have.

Everything Villa do good comes through the young attacking star, and it's an age old cliche, but if Grealish played well last year, then so did Villa.

The obvious step up to the Premier League is a challenge for all players in promoted sides, but Grealish should find it easier than most, given his experience of the top flight already when he first broke into the first-team at Villa Park.

Blessed with immense technical ability and one of those players who can seemingly unlock the door out of nothing, plenty of fantasy players should be eyeing Grealish.

Six goals last season and seven assists to alongside it mark the 23-year-old as a real one to watch in the 2019/20 season, with England honours surely not far away for Villa Park's favourite son.
