Jack Grealish credits Manchester City’s togetherness for their recent success ahead of another crucial run-in in the Premier League.

Pep Guardiola’s men are second in the table, just one point behind Arsenal with a game in hand, as they aim to win an unprecedented fourth consecutive league title.

City have already won the Club World Cup this season, beating Fluminense to earn the trophy, and they will also play in the FA Cup final against Manchester United for the second year in a row later this month.

Despite the hopes of back-to-back trebles being ended by their Champions League quarter-final exit to Real Madrid, Grealish is confident that City will finish the season successfully, highlighting the crucial strong bond amongst the team.

“I’ve said in a lot of interviews that, for me, the team I’m in now – and especially last year – it’s just unbelievable, the togetherness we have. Over the years, there have been so many top teams in the Premier League that haven’t done what we’ve done,” he told Sky Sports.

“Even City’s team in 2018-19, with David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne and Man United’s team in 2008-09, with Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez – none of these teams won the treble.

“That says something about our team because you can have all of the talent in the world, but you need to have the other side of it as well, like that togetherness of the pitch. That’s something we had so much of, and we’ve got it this season as well.

“With the experience we have and the quality we have, we don’t really doubt ourselves.

“I feel like everyone knows how hard it is to win a treble. We did it last year, and it was one of the best feelings I’ve ever had in football, especially having played such a big part in it.

“I just want to finish the season strongly, try and win every competition we’re in at the moment.”

Grealish has struggled with injuries this season, managing 33 appearances in all competitions, and scoring just three goals.

Since making his return against Arsenal at the end of March, the 28-year-old has played in all but one of City’s eight games, and he is determined to make a successful finish to the season.

“When I’m injured, I start watching clips of myself and just remember how many good moments I have had in football. It brings back my love for football,” he said.

“There’s nothing that beats it. It’s what I’m used to, and it’s what I’ve done my whole life, so when I’m stuck indoors while the team are out training for a month or six weeks, it is difficult at times.

“Being injured certainly gave me that extra motivation to come back and just play well again and try and succeed with City. I’m over the moon to be back and, hopefully, I can have a strong end to the season.”
