Jack Grealish suffered a devastating setback as he picked up another groin injury during Manchester City’s 6-2 FA Cup victory over Luton.

The star player, starting for Pep Guardiola’s team at Kenilworth Road, had to be substituted in the first half due to the injury.

This unfortunate injury comes right after Grealish had just returned from a previous groin injury sustained in the Champions League match against Copenhagen earlier in the month.

Guardiola confirmed after the match that it appears to be a recurrence of the same issue and expressed hope that Grealish would have a successful recovery this time.

As Grealish left the pitch, he received consolation from his teammates on the field before visibly displaying his disappointment while sitting on the bench.

The England winger, clearly distraught, covered his head with his tracksuit top, reflecting the difficulties he has faced this season in not getting as much playing time as he would have liked.

This match marked Grealish’s first start in domestic football since early January, but it did not go as planned for the 28-year-old.

Despite his efforts, he had to leave the pitch early due to the recurring injury, leaving fans and teammates concerned about his well-being.

Guardiola, who emphasized the importance of Grealish to the team, will be anxiously waiting to hear the extent of his injury and how long he may be sidelined.

Guardiola confirmed post-match that he has suffered a recurrence of the same issue.

The City boss said: “Looks like it [a recurrence of the groin injury].

“It’s the second time. Hopefully this time he can recover well.”

The City supporters, who witnessed their team’s impressive performance in the FA Cup tie, were left disheartened by Grealish’s misfortune once again.

The night saw Manchester City secure their spot in the quarter-finals, with Erling Haaland’s first-half hat-trick and Kevin De Bruyne’s four assists contributing to the victory.

However, the focus has now shifted to the uncertainty surrounding Grealish’s fitness and availability for future matches.

In conclusion, Grealish’s injury setback has dealt a blow to both the player and the team, highlighting the challenges he has faced this season.

With Guardiola and the City fans hoping for a speedy recovery, the road to defending their FA Cup title may have to proceed without one of their key players.
