He latched on to a long ball from Ruben Dias and then cut in from the left wing, weaved around Leipzig ace Tyler Adams before curling a glorious shot past their keeper Peter Gulacsi to score City’s fourth goal of the game.

Grealish does not think any defender would have stopped him, telling BT Sport: “The ball came to me and when I’m in that position, running into the area, I’d back myself one on one against anyone.

“Luckily it paid off and I managed to hit the back of the net this time.”

It was the England star’s Champions League debut and he revealed that it was well worth the wait.

Grealish added: “I loved it. I’ve been waiting a while. The past few weeks, I couldn’t wait for this game. It’s a great night.”

But the £100million man wasn’t the only City star to score his first goal in the Champions League for the club.



Grealish was joined by Nathan Ake who also got on the scoresheet for the first time with a thumping header and putting City in front in the 16th minute.

But to City boss Guardiola’s horror, only 38,062 fans came to see his team crush Leipzig at their 55,000-capacity Etihad stadium.

And the Spaniard has urged the club’s fans to help fill out the remaining 17,000 empty seats for City’s game against Southampton on the weekend.
