Pep Guardiola has raved about Jack Grealish, claiming Manchester City attacker showed an “exceptional performance” during the club’s 1 – 1 draw with Southampton at the weekend.

Grealish has made a £100 million move to Etihad during the summer transfer window. Since then he has found himself struggling at the team, having a low start under Guardiola.

However, former Aston Villa man’s latest display for the Citizens against the Saints was an encouraging sign.

“The best game he has played since he has been with us, by far. An exceptional performance. He played really, really well. I’m talking about when he has the ball, what he has to do,” Guardiola said about Grealish (via City Xtra).

“In a team that is so tight, they defend so narrow, it is not easy. He played exceptionally.”
