Jack Grealish has been slammed by fans for appearing to accuse Lucas Moura of ‘diving’ in Manchester City‘s loss to Tottenham.
Grealish started in midfield as Man City kicked off their Premier League campaign with a shock defeat.
Pep Guardiola’s £100 million man failed to influence the match, with Son Heung-min scoring the game’s only goal on Sunday.
But the former Aston Villa captain was involved in a flash point with Spurs’ Moura in the dying stages of the league fixture.
Grealish fouled Moura who went down too easy, according to the England international.
An intense clash between Grealish and Moura occurred as each other’s teammates got involved, with the 25-year-old and Davison Sanchez receiving a yellow card.
We’ve missed this togetherness from the team for so long.
