Man City 5-0 Norwich: Player ratings


Manchester City put consecutive defeats behind them to claim a comfortable first win of the season, thumping Norwich 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

Jack Grealish scored his first City goal following his £100m record transfer from Aston Villa, a scruffy goal he appeared to know little about as it ricocheted off his leg into the net at the far post.

The reigning champions, who were beaten by Leicester in the Community Shield and then lost their Premier League opener against Tottenham last week, were dominant from the start against a Canaries side that were their own worst enemy by naively playing far too open.

Rigidly sticking to their philosophy, Norwich were determined to a play possession-based game and were swarmed by sky blue shirts, who easily won the ball back and kept it far better.

City zipped the ball about with ease throughout the 90 minutes and Grealish and Gabriel Jesus, operating on the flanks, were always sources of danger.
