Jack Grealish started but was unfortunately injure

Rarely did he get the chance to play as a starter, but Jack Grealish was unlucky enough to injure and had to be substituted in the 21st minute.

It has been a forgettable season for the England forward. Because he often struggles with injury problems and is also being robbed of his position by Jeremy Dogu. Who just moved in the summer.

Grealish has just started his 19th game out of a total of 26 appearances in all competitions. And left a meager performance by scoring only 3 goals and 2 assists only.

It is worrying for the 28-year-old star how much of an impact his injury will have. Even though he probably won’t be included in the England national team for Euro 2024, if he continues to suffer like this, he probably won’t be guaranteed either.

The power is almost back at full speed again.

Pep Guardiola has a nearly full squad ahead of the trip to Copenhagen. But Croatian defender Yosco Guardiol is not name.

The Spanish trainer revealed after the game that Guardiol may have to rest for 2-3 weeks due to an ankle injury.

However, Guardiola confirmed that Grealish. Who injured his groin, still has to wait and see. That Bernardo Silva. Who was substituted late in the game, did not have a serious ankle injury.

However, when looking at the overall picture, having Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland back is what makes “The Blues” look like a formidable team and have clearly improved their level over the past two months.
