Both Saka and Greaklish have already scored at Qatar, and Grealish's compliments towards his compatriot are evidence of the positive team spirit inside the Three Lions camp.
Saka's Arsenal have made their best-ever start to the Premier League season and are looking to win their first league title in nearly 20 years. He has been one of the Gunners' standout stars.
Meanwhile, Grealish's Manchester City are hot on Arsenal's tail, five points behind Mikel Arteta's side, having won four of the last five Premier League titles.

The two teams are yet to meet this season and when they do, it promises to be a cracker as it may determine who wins the league come May 2023.
Grealish's message to Saka
Speaking to Talksport, Grealish revealed he loves Saka, saying that although he doesn't talk much, he is funny.
"Saka is the best kid actually. I went up to his dad and told him, ‘I love your son!’ He’s the nicest kid ever but he’s got a little bit of banter as well. He’s funny, man. He’s laid back but when he’s on the training pitch, he’s on it. Off it, he’s quite laid back and chilled."
Grealish has been criticised by some sections of the media in the UK, but he's ignored the chatter and seems to be enjoying his time at Man City, following a big-money move from Aston Villa last season, according to Sky Sports.
Saka's importance for the Gunners has grown this season, as the North London side challenge the league. Arteta's side have won 12 of their 14 matches this season, losing just once to Manchester United.
Saka gives back to motherland
Sports Brief earlier reported on Saka sponsoring surgery for Nigerian children with various health problems.
The surgeries were done in October 2022 and the England international explained that he is happy to have helped.
The actions of the 21-year-old came as a response to concerns over diseases like inguinal hernias and brain tumours in the West African nation.
