Grealish, nearly ever-present during City’s march to last season’s Treble, returned from injury this week but has watched Doku flourish in his absence.
The 21-year-old offers something different from wide areas, a more direct attacker and boasts an unpredictability that Guardiola felt the team had been missing.
Debate has raged online over whether Doku deserves to keep his place in the starting XI ahead of Saturday’s trip to Wolves.
‘Jeremy can play on the right as well,’ Guardiola said. ‘Who’s going to play more? It’s who performs better. It’s simple. Phil (Foden) can play on the left too. The guy who performs well and feels better will have more chance to play.’
“I’m more than impressed with the new ones [signings], they’re playing at a high level. Some of them [need a year to adapt], the other ones can click.”
