Grealish went on to describe the goal, which came from a pass by Ilkay Gundoğan. “I know Gundo and I knew he was going to pass it, he’s so unselfish, him and Kev. I’m trying to go back across, as it was coming, it felt like ten seconds, I was going to try and reverse it, but I know Ramsdale from our time at England. I was due one of them, a deflection to help it go in. It feels so long. The longer you go without a goal, the more you do.”
The winger also spoke about the importance of the game, saying, “You get them games where you speak amongst yourself that everyone seems so concentrated on the game. I was so in the mood, staying off my phone, we had to win today and luckily we did.”
