Jack Grealish has backed Manchester City(opens in new tab) to go on one of their typical winning runs, after Wednesday’s 3-1 win over Arsenal(opens in new tab) sent the reigning champions top of the Premier League.
Grealish bagged City’s second goal at the Emirates Stadium, on a night when City landed an important blow in this season’s gripping title race.
Victory in the long-awaited rearranged fixture means that Pep Guardiola’s side lead Arsenal on goal difference (although the Gunners do still have a game in hand).
And, while conceding that City were perhaps fortunate to come out on top in North London, Grealish is confident that a victorious streak isn’t far way. Reacting to his team’s fourth league triumph in four games, he said:
“It was the perfect night: for me getting a goal and the team winning the game. I don’t think we played to our best and Arsenal were the better team if I’m honest, but that’s what good teams do: come to places like this when they’re not at their best and get three points. We have to try different ways of playing against good teams like this and that’s what we did.
