Premier League: Grealish scores first goal for Manchester City in 5-0 rout of Norwich, Everton held 2-2 by Leeds

Jack Grealish, British record signing, made his home debut for Manchester City memorable as he found the back of the net as Pep Guardiola’s men returned to winning ways with 5-0 hammering of Norwich City in the Premier League on Saturday.

Grealish bundled in a low cross by Gabriel Jesus in the 20th minute to double City’s lead after they had taken the lead in the sixth minute with a Tim Krul own goal.

Beaten in their opening game at Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, City looked far sharper and swarmed all over a lightweight Norwich. They also had a Ferran Torres goal ruled out inside the opening 20 minutes.
Norwich, who lost 3-0 to Liverpool on an opening day, avoided any further damage until midway through the second half when Aymeric Laporte fired in from close range.

City then turned the screw with Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez both getting on the scoresheet with well-worked goals.

Raphina stunner helps Leeds hold Everton

Leeds United winger Raphinha blasted in a second-half equalizer as the battling Yorkshire side came back twice to secure a 2-2 draw with Everton in the Premier League on Saturday for their first point of the season.

Raphinha, who was called up to the Brazilian squad for the first time last week, lashed one past goalkeeper Jordan Pickford in the 72nd minute after Everton winger Demarai Gray thought he had sealed a second straight win for the visitors.
