Pep Guardiola provides a positive update on the injury status of Jack Grealish

Pep Guardiola has provided a positive update on the groin injury suffered by Jack Grealish. The England international went off early in City’s 3-1 win over FC Copenhagen last week due to a groin injury. He missed his team’s 1-all draw with Chelsea at the weekend due to the injury.

Speaking following his team’s draw with Chelsea the City manager had an update on the status of Grealish. Pep Guardiola revealed that the winger may be back sooner rather than later from injury. Guardiola told the media: “It’s not that much, not that worse than we expect. Maybe 10 days, maybe three weeks, maybe a month. I think it’s less, so it’s good news.”

While Jack Grealish hasn’t been at his best this season he is a vital part of the treble winners squad. He was a crucial part of Manchester City’s treble success and brings a different dimension to City’s play when he is available. His ability to help Pep Guardiola’s side maintain control of games and help out defensively are valuable traits for the world champions.

Before going off injured against FC Copenhagen the value of Grealish to the champions was clear as they dominated the opening 20 minutes of the game at the Parken Stadium. With Grealish on the pitch, City didn’t allow the hosts a way into the game as they maintained control of possession with Grealish at the heart of their control.

The update from Pep Guardiola is positive news for the world champions. Grealish will have a vital role to play as they seek to defend the treble this season and create history.
