Villa handed fitness boost as Grealish back in training

Premier League - Brighton & Hove Albion v Aston Villa

(Reuters) - Aston Villa received a major boost ahead of Sunday's Premier League home game against Fulham with midfielder Jack Grealish returning to training after being out for six weeks due to a leg injury.

Grealish, who has six goals and 10 assists in the league this season, sustained the injury in training before their 2-1 defeat by Leicester City on Feb. 21.

The 25-year-old has missed six games, with Villa winning only once in his absence to slip to 10th.
