It’s a lovely finish by the Brazilian who curled his shot into the far corner – Pickford could do nothing about it. Defender Nathan Ake put City ahead in the 16th minute with a header from a Jack Grealish corner and the hosts doubled the lead 12 minutes later when Kevin De Bruyne produced wonderful skill to leave three defenders for dead before his deep cross was headed into his own net by Leipzig defender Nordi Mukiele. Again it comes from some good work by Gabriel Jesus who sets the Spaniard to smash it into the net. So no De Bruyne for City but a start for Gabriel Jesus up front as Raheem Sterling drops to the bench. Raheem Sterling has come on for the final half hour in place of Ferran Torres. It’s a hat trick of assists from Jesus who rolls the ball across the goalmouth and it’s an easy finish for Raheem Sterling.
Norwich have brought on McLean for Rupp who had a shocker of a first half. Your City XI to face Norwich! The arrival of Grealish from Aston Villa has supplemented a City midfield already blessed with the likes of Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne, Carragher says. For so long Grealish and Mount were seen to be competition, but with the Manchester City star on the left and the Chelsea man in midfield it showed that they could be a potent combination going forward. The Norwich players and even some of the Man City players seemed to stop as though they thought a foul was going to be given. The referee has changed his mind after going to the monitor. Gareth Southgate’s personality and intelligence means he’ll never be somebody who thinks he’s got everything all worked out, and the same goes for his right-hand man, Steve Holland. Gareth Southgate won plenty of praise from the former Three Lions international over his selection for the Euro 2020 opening win over Croatia. Crystal Palace have shown some early intent and came close to opening the score through Conor Gallagher who rattled the bar with an effort from inside the box.
Raphinha comes close to pulling Leeds level as he fires narrowly wide from the edge of the box. Michael Keane misjudges a ricochet Patrick Bamford finds Mateusz Klich who is unmarked and puts the ball past Pickford to pull them level. Chance for Norwich to pull one back via helping hand from Gundogan, who nearly puts Max Aarons’ cross into his own net. Not long left but if any team looks more likelier to net a win then it’s Leeds. Put simply, he embodies the best qualities about this England team. A further victory over Poland would put England in a truly commanding position heading into the next set of fixtures in early October. Patrick Bamford is doing what he can to put Leeds ahead but he can’t find a direct route through to goal. Manchester City picked up their first win of the new Premier League season after comfortably brushing aside Norwich at the Etihad, and Jack Grealish marked his home debut with his maiden goal for the club. Newcastle started brightly but a sensational overhead kick by Danny Ings turned the match in the tide of the home side. Villa begin their Premier League campaign at home to Sheffield United on Monday after Grealish played a key role in the club retaining its place in the top flight last season.
