Pep Guardiola offers verdict on Jack Grealish’s Man City Premier League debut
Man City downed by Tottenham
Manchester City’s Premier League title defence did not get off to a great start.
Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United all picked up comfortable wins over the opening weekend of the season.
Manchester City, on the other hand, would fall to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Tottenham.
City dominated the early exchanges of the tie on Sunday, but were unable to make their chances count.
This would eventually lead to Spurs finishing off one of their many counter-attacks in the second half, securing a 1-0 win thanks to a brilliant striker from Heung-min Son.
Sensational from Son! 👏
He just loves scoring against Manchester City! ⚽
Clinical counter-attack from Tottenham, and the champions trail in North London…

Guardiola on Grealish
Jack Grealish would also make his Premier League debut for Man City on Sunday.
The midfielder looked bright throughout and would cause some problems down the right side of Tottenham’s defence.
And now, Pep Guardiola has offered his verdict on Grealish’s debut, labelling it incredible:
“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.”
