Leicester win the Community Shield on Grealish’s Man City debut

Leicester City have done it again, by defeating Manchester City in the Community Shield at Wembley, souring Jack Grealish’s debut with the Citizens.

The 1-0 win over Pep Guardiola’s side means yet another major trophy for the Foxes, adding to their Premier League title in 2016 and FA Cup from last season.

Brendan Rodgers’ side lifted the first silverware of the season after a goal from ex-Manchester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho in the 89th minute, ruining Grealish’s debut for the Cityzens after signing this week.

It wasn’t a final to remember, with both sides not fielding their strongest teams. Guardiola had some big names missing with Kevin De Bruyne and John Stones out injured and several other big names still recovering from international duty over the summer with new signing Grealish starting on the bench.

It wasn’t until the 65th minute that we saw the introduction of Rodri and City’s record signing Grealish, who showed flashes of his undoubted ability.

Iheanacho sealed another cup victory for his side after finishes top scorer in last season’s FA Cup in a less than ideal start to the season for Manchester City and Grealish.
