Jack Grealish will not be able to play for Manchester City in their next Champions League game.

Manchester City will host Paris Saint-Germain in a Champions League game on Wednesday. Pep Guardiola’s side are looking to secure their last-16 spot, but they have to play without a key midfielder.

According to MEN, Jack Grealish has not participated in Man City’s team training ahead of the game. He picked up an injury during the last international break and missed his side’s 3-0 win over Everton on Sunday.

In a pre-match press conference, Man City boss Guardiola was asked about Grealish’s fitness.

 “Jack is much better,” Guardiola said.

“[There are] some niggles for some players. Tomorrow we have the last training session and we will decide then who will play.”

The Spaniard confirmed Kevin De Bruyne will certainly miss the game against PSG.

“Unfortunately, Kevin is not available.

“I don’t know [when his isolation period ends]. We will do another PCR test and then hopefully it will be negative and he will be back.”

Man City need a point to secure their spot in the knockout round. However, they must face PSG, who want to leapfrog them from the top of the table by beating them at the Etihad Stadium.
