Jack Grealish got off the mark in a Manchester City shirt on just his second start for Pep Guardiola’s side and fans were impressed with his performance.
The former Aston Villa playmaker has arrived at City with big expectations following his £100 million move, and it seems he has not taken long to settle.
Grealish played a key role as Guardiola’s side dismantled Daniel Farke’s Norwich City with an emphatic 5-0 victory on Saturday afternoon.
The midfielder ran rings around the opposition and put on a display typical of a trademark Grealish performance.
The icing on the cake was when Grealish netted his first goal for the club after Gabriel Jesus deft cross across goal bounced off of his shin into the back of the net.
City fans were quick to take to social media in order to praise their new signing’s performance and were all in agreement about Grealish’s performance.
@Doozy_45: Fantastic team performance by City. Jesus in his ‘natural’ position was excellent, Grealish and Gundogan ran the midfield like generals, and Dias/Laporte formed a brick wall at the back.
@bluemoon_mcfc: Felt great to be back at The Etihad today. Obviously such a comprehensive win helped! Really hope Bernardo and Laporte don’t leave, they’re integral to our chances this season imo. Grealish and Jesus were excellent too. Up the Blues
@MCFCAG: What a performance from the star man Jack grealish today Getting is 1st goal for city a well
@DaveWolinski: Jesus excellent. Nice for a bunch of people to get off the mark. Grealish so exciting to watch but a shame him and Torres weren’t quite on same page, and Laporte seemed reluctant to pass it out wide to him for some reason. Norwich didn’t have a sniff. Lovely pre-season stuff.
@mcfcmustii: Gabby Jesus 10/10 performance, Laporte and Dias were both solid, Grealish had Aarons on skates on all game and Bernardo silva + gundo duo is the best in the league.
City will face Arsenal next and Grealish will be hoping to continue his impressive momentum with expectations high as Pep Guardiola’s side look to retain the Premier League title.
