Manchester City facing duels with Liverpool and Bayern: Concerns about Erling Haaland and Phil Foden, Jack Grealish is thriving

“I feel like I’m at my best form since joining City.” The phrase comes from the most expensive player Manchester City has ever afforded: Jack Grealish.

The 117 million euro man emphasized in the run-up to the upcoming league duel against Liverpool (Sat., 1:30 p.m. in the ticker) that he now feels like “one of the most important players” at City and “fit like never” be. “A bit like it was at Aston Villa,” said Grealish, who left Villans in 2021 for Manchester.

The left winger couldn’t always live up to the astronomically high expectations in Manchester, but he’s now hitting the ground running. This is due to the fact that he recently “made a difference in big games”. “Scoring goals against Arsenal and Manchester United, assists away against Chelsea and in the cup against Arsenal,” Grealish recapitulated.

Meanwhile, the club is happily calculating on its website what the England international will bring to City’s pitch. He does an average of 323 meters per game with the ball at the foot forward – Premier League best! The pass rate under pressure of 84.9 percent is also outstanding.

City worried about Foden and Haaland

The 27-year-old’s gala form comes at just the right time, as Phil Foden, one of the best wingers, is out. The 22-year-old had to undergo surgery for acute appendicitis. “He will not be fit for the Premier League home game against Liverpool and it is not yet clear how long he will be out,” the club said.

The same applies to Erling Haaland, with 42 goals this season in 37 competitive games, the one-man goal factory of the Citizens. The Norwegian is suffering from a groin injury. Is it enough for Liverpool? Questionable. “It’s on a knife’s edge,” explained father Alf-Inge to “TV 2 Sport”. His son could not “do not train for two weeks and then intervene directly in the fight”.

Especially since the Liverpool game is of course not enough. On April 11th and 19th they will face FC Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, on April 22nd City are aiming for a place in the final of the FA Cup against Sheffield United, and four days later leaders FC Arsenal will visit the Etihad Stadium.

Grealish hot for Bayern: “Coach trusts me in big games”

In principle, the club’s self-image and the sheer size of the goals require five wins or two results in the premier class, which is enough to eliminate Bayern. This year it should finally work out with the first title in Europe’s bel étage.

Guardiola confident: Haaland can “still improve”

Grealish has a key role to play in this. He knows that, he demands that. “The coach trusts me in big games,” said the wing star. “I feel like I gave that back to him and did my part.”

The next step: Grealish also wants to become a decisive factor against Liverpool, Bayern and Arsenal.
