Jack Grealish has opened his Manchester City goal account and its come in extremely fluky fashion.
Grealish starred as Man City lost to Tottenham in their Premier League opener last weekend.
Pep Guardiola has continued with his £100 million man and the England international has repaid his manager’s faith by scoring against Norwich.

Kyle Walker played in Gabriel Jesus who fired a cross-shot across the goal mouth, with the ball ricocheting off Grealish into the back of the net.
He knew nothing about it, but wheeled away in celebration as he scored his first goal for his new club.
Tim Sherwood, who’s covering the match for Sky Sports, hilariously said: “This is the worst goal he’s ever going to score.”
