Manchester City attacker Jack Grealish insists his form has been hampered by injury.
The England international has been criticised this season.
But Grealish says: “I started quite well in pre-season, started the first game of the season which we won away at West Ham. In the second game I obviously got injured and I have been injured since last week. I have come back and played a few Champions League games.
“I felt like I could have done better in both of them, but I am still trying to catch up on my fitness. I have been injured for a fair bit at the start of the season which wasn’t ideal, but now I am just looking forward, trying to get fit and trying to get my form back.
“Last year I was settling in, but now I want to start performing the way that got me the move here. I did at times last season, maybe not consistent enough and that is something I can improve on this year and hopefully that pays off.”
