Jack Grealish has shown Manchester City fans what he will bring to the team after his debut in the 1-0 defeat to Tottenham on Sunday afternoon.

Grealish made his first start for the club in a midfield three alongside Fernandinho and Ilkay Gundogan where he was able to showcase some of the qualities he will give to Pep Guardiola's side.


However, the 25 year-old England international was ultimately unable to score or create a goal to break down Tottenham's defence.

Even though Grealish was unable to guide Manchester City to a victory, Guardiola spoke highly of his performance: "His personality and influence. He got three or four fouls in the first minutes and immediately he woke up and showed himself.

"He has incredible continuity, he is so dangerous close to the box, when we have the ball he always has an extra pass.

"He got three or four fouls in the first minutes and immediately he woke up and showed. He has incredible continuity, he is so dangerous close to the box, when we have the ball he always has an extra pass.

"He had an incredible game and incredible debut and will be so important for us. I congratulate him for having the personality to try and try until the end."

Grealish's fellow club and international teammate Raheem Sterling was also full of praise for the former Aston Villa midfielder: "I played with Jack a few times. It's a good partnership but it's still early days with me and him.

"We will learn each other's game more as the season goes on and hopefully build a better partnership for the rest of the campaign."

After showing some positive signs on Sunday, Grealish will hope to make his home debut against Norwich in front of the Manchester City faithful next weekend.
