MANCHESTER CITY star Jack Grealish can’t wait to take on old club Aston Villa in the season finale in what could be the Premier League title decider.
Grealish joined City in a blockbuster £100million transfer from Villa last summer.
And the England international is on course to clinch his first title with leaders City since leaving Villa Park.
But City’s 2-2 draw with West Ham on Sunday, which saw Grealish score, means the title race could go all the way with Liverpool.
Just a point separates Liverpool and City when the Reds oust Southampton on Tuesday night.
With that, City would need a win over Villa to secure their second consecutive title and Grealish can’t wait to take three points from his old side.
He gushed to Sky Sports about the Birmingham Mail following the Cityzens’ tie with the Hammers: “I can’t wait. It’s gonna be a great day. It just had to be against Aston Villa, right? Couldn’t have been any other game!
“But that doesn’t matter at all, it’s not about me, it’s not about who we’re playing against.
“It’s about the team and it’s about the club and we’re going to go out there and try to win and get all three points. For me it will be different, I’ve never had that before.
“I’ve never had a game on the last day to win a title so I’m looking forward to it and can’t wait.”

But Grealish won’t be the only one fired for the clash.
Villa boss Steven Gerrard and new signing Philippe Coutinho both hope to do old club Liverpool a favor by beating City.
The pair failed to win the league during their time together at Anfield.
And Gerrard will get a chance to make up for his slip-up against Chelsea that cost the Reds the title in 2014 with a win over City to help the Merseyside giants.
