Jack Grealish admits to struggles at Pep Guardiola's Man City as he tries to adapt

Jack Grealish admits he feels like a let down since joining Manchester City in a British record £100m deal.

Grealish has revealed he's struggled to produce his best form following his stunning move from Aston Villa in the summer.

The England ace, 26, has scored just twice in 15 appearances for Pep Guardiola's Premier League champions.

Grealish will return to Villa Park for the first time since leaving his boyhood club, when City take on Steven Gerrard's men.

And he admits to finding his new life at the Etihad difficult at times.

He told the Telegraph: "I've got so much more to give.

"I've found it a lot more difficult than I thought I would, adapting to a different manager and team-mates.

"At first, I thought I'd have more of the ball, get more assists and goals, but it doesn't work like that at all. I've had nowhere near as much of the ball as I used to get at Villa."

Grealish could return to face former club Aston Villa on Wednesday.

The England midfielder has missed the Premier League champions' last three games with a knock sustained on international duty.

Manager Guardiola said: "In the training sessions, for Jack yesterday was his first minutes with the team. For Phil too.

The midweek Premier League trip to Villa Park looks like it is coming too soon for playmaker Kevin De Bruyne.

The Belgium international contracted coronavirus during the international break earlier this month and has only just completed his isolation.

"Kevin still didn't train," Guardiola said. "He's negative from the last test but he could not train."
