Thought he was really good second half. Finishing was a bit off but he caused them no end of problems.

I thought his battle with James and Azpilicueta really set the tone early on.

They tried to bully him and he did not back down. Gave as good as he got, and up pushing James into the billboards via Azpilicieta and James injured himself trying to get the better of him.

Could have done better with the ball but this was his first title race 6 pointer and he stood up to the challenge.

Thought he was the weak link today. He wasn't shit by any means but everybody else was at least an 8/10 and he wasnt at that level. The only time Chelsea ever got out of our press was down their right through the space Grealish occupies, rarely saw him busting a gut to close down the space, allowed azpilicueta to put in crosses unchallenged or forced cancelo to engage which left laporte exposed. He needs to work on that big time.

Going forward he was tidy and looked to be a threat but his final ball once again wasn't there. Should have had 2 easy assists today and a goal from the 1v1. Was unlucky with the effort mendy saved

Same as what's been said before really, everything but his work rate and his output is there.

I thought he was much better than De Bruyne, personally
Yeah, that's not unfair. Think kdb did a lot of very good second pressing work first half that went largely unappreciated in an otherwise quiet game from him but that's for another thread. Grealish certainly had more involvement overall than kdb in key attacking passages but he choose poorly in them.

He won so many corners and free kicks , kept possession and drew two/three players towards him every time he recieved the ball , Sterling isnt getting anywhere near this team whilst Jack plays in this form , no disrespect to Raheem a great player but Grealish has the shirt and deserves it.

Great work rate.

Would like to see pep give him a tad more freedom to move inside. Understand why it won't happen at the moment.
