Man City's Grealish: “I feel back to myself.”

Grealish thanks Man City boss Pep Guardiola for believing in him.

Grelalish is loving life with the Cityzens, who ran riot over Man Utd last weekend and hammered Copenhagen at the Etihad.

Manchester City attacking midfielder Jack Grealish has expressed his joy at playing at the Etihad stadium.

The England international was part of the City side that crushed Manchester United 6-3 in the Premier League last weekend and 5-0 against Copenhagen in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The Cityzens are in fine form, and with Erling Haaland in the side, sky is clearly the limit for the English top flight champions.

All in all, ex-Aston Villa star Grealish says he is enjoying life with the Cityzens and will continue plying his trade with a smile.

'Playing with a smile on my face'

"I loved it. Playing in the Champions League at the Etihad is always great," Grealish to BT Sport. "Three wins out of three to top the group. It was a great night. I'm loving it.

"My last three or four games I feel back to myself. I am playing more with that freedom and confidence. It would help if I got on the scoresheet, I was desperate tonight [on Wednesday], but it's all about enjoying it and winning.

"I've played a lot of games recently, so I'm thankful to the manager for that. I'm playing with a smile on my face and feel like I'm settling in now."

When quizzed about the inform striker Erling Haaland, the 27-year-old said: "It's unbelievable honestly. I've never witnessed anything like it in my life. For the first and second goals I was just laughing. He is always there.

"The keeper said something to me as I was walking back. He said 'he's not human!' I said 'you're telling me?' Hopefully he can carry on this form and take us to glory."

Hargreaves: 'It is scary for everyone else.'

Owen Hargreaves also revealed his thoughts on how scary Man City are at the moment.

"Possession we're used to but to have 30 shots, even from Manchester City, seems a lot,” the former City and United midfielder explained.

"I'm sure there were a couple more goals out there for Erling Haaland and he will know that too, but City want to keep him fresh. I'm sure he would have wanted to stay out there, but Cole Palmer came on and did great. Haaland stays healthy and he can take them to the Champions League title which is what they all want.

"City never play poorly. Rarely does that happen. They are special to watch, they play beautiful football, but now they are scoring four or five goals every game it is scary for everyone else."
