Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish has uploaded a photo to his instagram, featuring himself and Kevin De Bruyne challenging for the ball on Saturday lunchtime, captioning the photo 'The best of the best' with an arrow pointing to the Manchester City star.
Grealish, who caused Manchester City several problems in the early kick-off on Saturday, has shown his admiration for Manchester City's creative midfielder after he registered his ninth assist of the campaign, albeit in fortunate fashion.
Kevin De Bruyne's cross into the box in the 65th minute of Saturday's encounter seemed to find a free route to goal, however upon second viewing from the Premier League, David Silva got the finest of touches on the ball. The Belgian star is now en route to smashing the assist record this campaign, after registering his ninth assist in just nine games.
Saturday's contribution takes KDB's goal contributions up to staggering eleven contributions in just nine games! It's no wonder the Villa man was full of praise for City's number 17. Grealish himself received praise from Pep Guardiola, who remarkably claimed the Englishman would be 'too expensive' to sign for the Premier League champions.
