2 goals and 3 assists in 9 games after WC… Grealish, finally a £100m ransom
Is Jack Grealish (27), the ‘100 million pound man’, finally playing an active role worthy of his ransom?
Manchester City’s winger Grealish scored the winning goal to break the 1-1 balance in the 2022-2023 season English Premier League (EPL) round 12 match against league leader Arsenal held at Emirates Stadium in London, England on the 16th (Korean time). -1 Contributed to victory.
Man City (+36 goals), who added 3 points in away games, tied with Arsenal (+26 goals), who played one less game, with 51 points, but took the lead in goal difference. In the 27th minute of the second half, Grealish fired a goal-scoring shot from the left side of the goal with his right foot.
Grealish joined Manchester City안전놀이터 from Aston Villa in the summer of 2021. At that time, the transfer fee of 100 million pounds (approximately 154.5 billion won) was the highest EPL record before 121 million euros (approximately 166.2 billion won) recorded by Enso Fernandez (22) when he moved from Benfica to Chelsea this winter.
However, Grealish was below expectations at Manchester City. His lackluster season in the first season is understandable given that Pep Guardiola needs time to adjust to his tactics. However, even at the beginning of the 2022-2023 season, there was little flash of light when playing as an Aston Villa ace. One goal and zero assists were all in eight league games before the Qatar World Cup break.
Grealish admitted after playing against Chelsea on the 6th of last month that he was having more trouble adjusting to the team than expected. He thought he would score a lot of points and assists for the league’s top team, but he didn’t. He said he had no idea how difficult it would be to adjust to a different team and manager.
Did the World Cup experience become a ‘medicine’? He is slowly recovering from the revival of the league after the World Cup in Qatar.
With 2 goals and 3 assists in the last 9 games, including scoring on this day, he is performing even better than before the World Cup.
Manchester City is aiming for a third consecutive league title this season and the club’s first European Champions League title. However, Manchester City is often exposed to weaknesses that cannot find other breakthroughs when Elling Hollan (22) is tied up in the attack. At that time, if Grealish blows up a shot, it will open up your breath. Attention is focusing on whether he will be able to prove that the club’s judgment, in which he invested 100 million pounds, was correct.
