According to Liverpoolworld, Pep Guardiola has revealed that he does not know when Jack Grealish will return to play for Manchester City. The winger, who cost £100 million from Aston Villa in the summer of 2021, is presently out with a groyne injury. Grealish suffered another setback in City’s 3-1 Champions League triumph against Copenhagen in the first leg of the last 16.

The defending European champions prepare to play Denmark in the rematch at the Etihad Stadium tonight. They then go to Liverpool for a pivotal Premier League championship clash on Sunday. The Reds presently lead Guardiola’s team by one point, and the outcome of the game will have a significant effect on who wins the title, with Arsenal behind by another point.

Grealish will not be playing at Anfield. Guardiola, Etihad’s manager, stated before of the Copenhagen game: “Selection all depends on how people recover from the previous game.”

“That is all. We shall make a choice tomorrow morning. Focus is really crucial. Jack is not prepared. I don’t know when he’ll be available.I don’t believe [he’ll be back before the internationals]. I haven’t spoken with the doctors, but I believe he has to recuperate well enough to be used as much as possible.”

Meanwhile, Jeremy Doku was absent from training ahead of the Copenhagen game. Since joining City from Rennes for £55 million last summer, the winger has scored six goals and assisted five times.
