Grealish, who led Man City’s side attack and played full-time, drew attention to the scene in which he blocked Son Heung-min’s dribble breakthrough with a tackle in the face-to-face confrontation with Tottenham. On the 21st, British HITC introduced Grealish’s interview about the tackle he made on Son Heung-min.
Regarding the situation at the time, Grealish said, “It was something we had to do. We tackled Son Heung-min because he was so good at breaking through. Fortunately, it went well.” He also indicated that “Tottenham are difficult to play against because they build a back five. It is difficult to play as a winger.”
