(Manchester City-Norwich 5-0) Pep Guardiola got a much-anticipated boost after losing in the series opener. And City fans got exactly what they wanted: a goal from Jack Grealish.
Jack Grealish is the player brought in to make title holders Manchester City even better. On Saturday, he began repaying the billion som Citi had to pay the Englishman.
Grealish was lucky when a post from Gabriel Jesus almost hit him at a knee height. The post was passed through one of Norwich’s legs and the 25-year-old ended up somewhat haphazardly controlling the ball into the net. He celebrated by inserting his fingers into his ears.
“It’s the ugliest goal he’s ever scored,” former Tottenham coach Tim Sherwood told Sky Sports.
There was no recording of Pearl, but in any case it was the perfect start to the home debut of the record signing, which was hailed by the satisfied fans at Etihad Stadium.

City had already taken the lead at home when Grealish scored. The opening goal also came after a column from the right wing, but this time the home team got a helping hand – or a leg – from Norwich.
Grant Hanley extended his foot forward to clear the post, but ended up shooting the ball past Tim Kroll and into his own net.
The light blues from the first minute to the last minute dominated the Norwich game, scoring continued after the break. Aymeric Laporte picked up the fallen fruit after a corner and knocking at 3:00 tonight.

Shortly after the equalizer, Raheem Sterling replaced him on the scorers’ list. Kyle Walker opened the defense with a very impressive stick, and Jesus rolled the ball in front of the goal. In the back, sterling has done the same many times before.
Five minutes before the end, Riyad Mahrez played alone against the goalkeeper and scored the final 5-0 with a safe finish across the post and into the net.
– It was a very good match for us. We moved the ball fast, ran into the back room and pressed for more goals. This is what we should do in all matches, Gabriel Jesus tells the BBC.
Kevin De Bruyne sat in the stands during the match. The Belgian has an ankle injury.
