Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne has hailed teammate Jack Grealish following his impressive performance in Manchester City’s 4-1 victory over Liverpool on Saturday.

De Bruyne said: “He’s been really good – even since the beginning. Maybe the only difference now is that he scores a little bit more and gives more assists.

“His overall play has been excellent. Everybody has been happy [with him].”

Grealish has stepped up his attacking contributions in recent months and now has 12 direct goal contributions (goals and assists) to his name this season. It is two more than he managed in the whole of last term.
