Jack Grealish, a midfielder for Manchester City, has now given his assessment of Tottenham Hotspur under Ange Postecoglou for the current campaign.
The England midfielder was speaking with Sky Sports yesterday after City defeated Luton Town 2-1 in the late game.

In defending City’s recent performance, Grealish also acknowledged Tottenham’s advancement this year.
He stated: “I believe that a lot of people like to talk about City and act as though there is a major crisis, but in actuality, we have faced some really strong opponents.
“We’ve faced off against the incredible Spurs. Liverpool is currently leading the league.
And then we have played Chelsea and Aston Villa away, who have got one of the best home records in the whole of Europe so we have played brilliant teams.
“We lost one and drew three, so it’s not the end of the world but people like to pretend it is sometimes.”
Tottenham must find this compliment even more sweet in light of the fact that they are still far from their best.
Important players are still absent even though a few more bodies were recovered yesterday against Newcastle United.

Although Grealish will downplay it, Pep Guardiola’s team has had a difficult run of late, and the players will undoubtedly be disappointed.
Even though James Maddison and Micky van de Ven have been missed by Tottenham, Rodri’s absence in the midfield is proving too much for City to handle.
