Pep Guardiola hoping to unleash Man City’s secret weapon in Arsenal and Liverpool title race

By Staff

Pep Guardiola is hoping Jack Grealish can rediscover his form of last season as Man City battle Arsenal and Liverpool for the Premier League title.

Grealish was sensational for City when they won the treble last season, but this season has been tough for him. He missed a month early in the season with a dead leg and a groin problem has limited him to just one appearance in City’s last seven games.

The 28-year-old also had a spell out through illness and had personal matters to deal with after a high-profile burglary at his home. But he may return to the side when City welcome Newcastle to Etihad Stadium in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Speaking ahead of the game, City boss Guardiola is hopeful the Englishman can rediscover his form and act as his side’s secret weapon going forward.

The City manager said: “We’ll see. We have this game and then two weeks where he will work hard and as clever as possible to be ready when we come back. He’s trained the last two or three days really good. He feels good and positive.

“Saturday maybe we’ll need him and then he has these two weeks especially to work well and come back. Then we can have the Jack that unfortunately this season we had few, few times – and he can help us.

“Always we dream of arriving at the last international break of the season in all competitions. Jack has helped us but not like last season. That’s why the most important thing is to recover well from this minor injury and take a good condition in case we need him.

“I’m not going to say how important Jack is – of course he is. But he has to be ready.”
