Jack Grealish misses Manchester City’s trip to Norwich with shin injury


Jack Grealish has been left out of Manchester City’s squad to face Norwich on Saturday due to a shin injury, leaving the England international in a race against time to be fit for the club’s Champions League match on Tuesday.

Grealish, 26, suffered the injury in training this week.

The news will come as a blow to Pep Guardiola, with City set to resume their Champions League campaign next week with a trip to Sporting CP in the round of 16.

Guardiola told Sky Sports: “He is injured. It is a bit what he had last season at Aston Villa but less.

“He trained after the game against Brentford and he was not good. We made a test and he was not ready today.

“Hopefully (he will be) next Tuesday.”

Grealish has emerged as a key player for Guardiola since his record-breaking transfer from Aston Villa in the summer, with three goals in 25 appearances in all competitions.

Gabriel Jesus and Zack Steffen were also left out of the squad that travelled to Carrow Road.
