Pep Guardiola admits Grealish feels the pressure of his £100m transfer fee.
The England international scored his first goal of the season in City’s 3-0 win over Wolves on Saturday.
This was Grealish’s fourth Premier League goal for Man City since his arrival from Aston Villa last year in a record £100m transfer fee.
Grealish has struggled for goals and assists since his move to the Etihad but Guardiola defender his player after the game.
“I’ve always said if you are here, it’s because I trust them unconditionally, all of them. I know them,” Guardiola told reporters after the win.
“He scored a goal and it was a good performance. Every time he has the ball it’s one-against-one against the full-back all the time.
“OK, he didn’t score or assist (in previous games), but it’s a question of time,” he said. “Of course I am happy for him, for the victory, for his incredible personality to play.”
