Pep Guardiola hailed Raheem Sterling’s best performance in a Manchester City shirt for a long time and also praised Jack Grealish for a ‘perfect’ contribution off the bench.

City celebrated a 2-1 victory over Aston Villa in a midweek Premier League game on Wednesday.

Goals from Ruben Dias and Bernardo Silva helped Cityzens to celebrate the victory meanwhile Ollie Watkins scored for Villa.

After the game Guardiola was delighted with Grealish, who returned following injury but also took the time to praise Sterling for putting City in control of the game.

“He gave us what we needed. He was perfect,” Guardiola said of Grealish. “We spoke about keeping the ball in play, touches, the quality. Every time he touched the ball he keeps it. It’s what we need.

 

“Today I’d like to praise one player especially: Raheem Sterling. He played the best game in a long time. He was a threat for us and deserves all my compliments because he was sensational.”
