Grealish was ‘sick all morning’ before the Liverpool game

Jack Grealish played a key role in Manchester City’s 4-1 win over Liverpool, helping them close the gap to league leaders Arsenal to five points

Despite not feeling his best, Jack Grealish made a valuable contribution to Manchester City’s 4-1 victory over Liverpool by providing an assist for Julian Alvarez’s goal, which equalized Mohamed Salah’s opener.

Grealish later scored himself to secure the win 16 minutes before full-time. His performance was especially commendable given his physical condition.

Grealish admits how tough Arsenal are

“We knew it was going to be a tough game playing against Liverpool,” he told BT Sport. “The first game after the international break is always difficult, so we wanted to start it right – this last period of the season.

“Liverpool are so dangerous with the players they have up front, so we went 1-0 down. Then you don’t fear the worst, but think it’s going to be a tough game to get back into. We responded brilliantly and thought we were excellent, especially in the second half.

“Arsenal are a great team, it’s in their hands

“We had a chat between ourselves and with the manager [at half-time], and he said we have to stay in the game. I thought we were good [in the] first half apart from the goal. I was in the toilet at half-time, I felt sick all morning but fine now, I feel buzzing.”

Grealish has been involved in eight Premier League goals (three goals and five assists) since the World Cup, which indicates a return to form for the player. He believes that his team’s pursuit of Arsenal is back on track thanks to their recent performances.

“I love it – I love playing, training,” he continued. “When it’s going well, there’s nothing better. I feel back to my normal self, feel fit and back to confidence – scoring and getting the assist.

“Arsenal are a great team, it’s in their hands, so we’ve just got to keep doing what we can to chase them down.”
