has dismissed suggestions that are in crisis after their defeat to last weekend.

at the Emirates Stadium last Sunday.

The result leaves City two points behind Arsenal and Tottenham, who have both registered 20 points from eight Premier League games so far.

Pep Guardiola’s side have now suffered back-to-back defeats in the Premier League for the first time since 2018, while they are also out of the Carabao Cup after they were beaten by Newcastle United last month.

However, when asked if City’s record of three losses in four games is considered a crisis, Grealish said: ‘Come on, no chance.

‘Obviously I’ve never lost two games in a row for City before. But it’s nowhere near a crisis.

‘We had a brilliant start to the season. We didn’t win the Community Shield but then we won the Super Cup. We then won six in a row and we’ve obviously lost the last two.

‘Rodri has been a big miss for us. There’s no doubt about that.

‘For me, I come [to England] this week and I’ve tried to do little bits of extra fitness after training, just to try and help myself get back to full fitness.

‘I feel like when I am fit, I can help any team in the world, whether that be here at England or at City.

‘As soon as I go back to City, I need to get myself back in that starting XI because towards the end of last season, I was playing every single game so that’s how I want it to be.’
