Former Newcastle United striker Alan Shearer has singled out Jack Grealish for praise following Manchester City’s 4-1 demolition job over Liverpool last weekend.

Shearer said: “He tied Trent Alexander-Arnold in knots. Grealish looks right at home in a Manchester City shirt now and his run back to stop Mohamed Salah shows why Guardiola loves him.”

Since his mega-money £100m move from Villa to City in 2021, Grealish, who has four years left on his deal, has gone on to score 10 goals and provide a further 12 assists in 76 matches in all competitions.
