Report: Manchester City boost as 'sensational' player returns from injury just in time to face Tottenham this weekend

Manchester City have been handed a boost as Jack Grealish has returned from injury just in time to face Tottenham Hotspur this weekend, according to the Manchester Evening News

City are coming off the back of a disappointing 1-1 draw against Aston Villa on Saturday, while Spurs beat Fulham 2-1 at home. 

Pep Guardiola’s men have looked electrifying in attack as new signing Erling Haaland has already reached 10 goals in the Premier League. 

And the City boss has been handed a further boost as the ‘sensational’ Grealish looks set to return from a spell on the sidelines in time to face Tottenham on Saturday.

Grealish returns from injury 

The Manchester Evening News reports that Grealish has now returned from injury ahead of City’s packed fixture schedule

Guardiola was debating bringing Grealish on against Villa over the weekend but didn’t want to take the risk.

“We thought about it at one-zero but he trained just two days,” the City boss said. 

“If we had scored two, for sure we would have had him in. Jack started the season really well and we need players so it’s good to have him back.”

The 26-year-old has been underwhelming since making the big money switch from Villa last summer. 

Grealish has seemingly struggled to adjust to City’s style of play but did show signs of improvement before his injury. 

And he could get another chance to stake a claim for a place in Guardiola’s side against Spurs this weekend. 

Antonio Conte’s men are currently unbeaten in the Premier League and sit level on points with City. 

The last time Spurs travelled to Manchester to face Guardiola’s men, the North London side ran out 3-2 winners after a brilliant display. 

Guardiola will be hoping to get revenge over Spurs on Saturday and having Grealish back from injury will be a big boost for the Spaniard.
