Aston Villa midfielder Grealish dropped for Watford game

Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish has been dropped for Saturday's Premier League match against Watford, according to manager Remi Garde.

Grealish has since been training with the Villa under-21 side and will continue to do so, Garde said at this morning's press conference.

"He won't be included in the squad for Watford," said Garde.

"(His actions) are not of the professional standard that I expect from my players. That is why Jack is training in the under-21 team."
