Champions League: Pep Unsure Of Grealish As Man City Set To Battle PSG

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed that Jack Grealish will be assessed before he considers selecting him for Wednesday night’s Champions League encounter against Paris Saint-Germain.

The 25-year-old picked up a knock in training while on international duty with England, which forced him to miss last weekend’s 3-0 victory against Everton. Grealish also sat out of first-team training on Tuesday afternoon ahead of their penultimate Group A clash with PSG at the Etihad Stadium.

However, Guardiola has stated that the playmaker is feeling “much better”.

“Jack is much better. (There are) some niggles for some players. [On Wednesday], we have the last training session and we will decide then who will play,” the Spaniard told the press on Tuesday.

The 50-year-old also confirmed that Kevin De Bruyne remains in self-isolation after testing positive for COVID-19 over the weekend, and revealed that he is unsure about when the Belgian’s isolation period will end.

As for Ferran Torres – who continues to recover from a fractured foot – Guardiola has stated that he “will be out for two to three months”, despite a previous report suggesting that the 21-year-old is hoping to return to action before the end of 2021.

Man City will finish top of Group A and can book their place in the last 16 of the Champions League if they secure all three points against Mauricio Pochettino’s side at the Etihad Stadium. (Sports Mole)
