It was an intense affair at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as Spurs bested Manchester City 1-0 in an opening day blow for the defending champions.
Manchester City’s new signing Jack Grealish was less than impressive on his debut as it all went downhill for him as the game progressed.
The 100 million pounds man showed flashes of his brilliance at the beginning but soon faded away just like his teammates and ended the match with a skirmish with Lucas Moura at the death.
As good a footballer he is, the former Aston Villa player is also known to hit the ground rather dramatically to win favours from the referee.
Though, in a surprising turn of events, it was Grealish himself who accused the Spurs winger of diving with defeat looming on Sunday.
The English international took out the Brazilian with a late challenge and then seemingly lost his head as he accused Moura of going down too easily.

Davinson Sanchez setting the record straight
Just watching the game back. When Grealish fouled Moura and suggested that he dived, and then Sanchez came barrelling through to point all over the pitch as if to say “You’ve dived there, there and there” was marvellous.— Shelley Johnson (@shelleyj89) August 15, 2021

The Nigerian politics equivalent
Grealish moaning about Lucas Moura is akin to President Buhari complaining about Governor Ikpeazu's incompetency.— Ifeanyichukwu (On restriction) ☢️ (@Myka_veli) August 15, 2021
Asking the right questions
If Jack Grealish is £100m, how much is Lucas Moura?— Chris. (@spurslogic_) August 15, 2021
