Grealish managed to put City ahead at the Emirates in a night that Arsenal were “a lot better”
Man City managed a 3-1 win at the Emirates stadium, sending them top of the Premier League for the first time in weeks. Although the Gunners still have a game in hand.
A ‘massive’ night for Grealish
The former Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish conceded that his side were inferior when it came to dominating the game. However, he has rejoiced in the win.
“If I’m being honest, I don’t think we actually played that well,” Grealish told Amazon Prime after his fifth goal involvement in nine Premier League matches since returning from the World Cup.
“I think Arsenal played a lot better than us. I thought they were the better team, I think so.”
“Even when you’re not at your best, you’ve got to win games.”
Grealish might have had a £100million price tag, but he has been accused of not scoring enough goals. However, the 27-year-old he was happy with his performance and goal against Arsenal.
“If I’m being honest, I don’t think we actually played that well,”
“Honestly, it was massive. For me, it was a great night.” Grealish added.
“That’s what I’ve wanted to do. I feel like I’ve been playing well. I want to come and affect these big games.
“To score tonight was so important, honestly, I was absolutely buzzing, for myself and the team. I thank the manager really, he’s letting me play a lot and with freedom.”
He acknowledged Gundogan’s brilliant pass in the box which led to him scoring the goal against Arsenal.
“I know [Ilkay] Gundo[gan] and I knew he was going to pass it. He’s so unselfish, I just knew he was going to pass.” He said.
“As it was coming, it felt like 10 seconds. I was going to try and reverse it, but I know [Aaron] Ramsdale from our time at England.
“When I was celebrating, I was going to take my top off, but I was on a yellow card already!”
