A series of clips showcasing ongoings at Manchester City’s title celebrations have come to the fore on Monday evening.
And summer addition Jack Grealish has taken his position front and centre in the footage, evidently in fine form on the back of securing the first major piece of silverware of his career.
Man City, of course, made it four Premier League titles in the space of five years a little over 24 hours ago, owing to a pulsating win over Aston Villa at the Etihad.
After slipping into a shock two-goal hole late on, the Sky Blues soon came roaring back, finding the net on a trio of occasions to ultimately emerge on the right side of a 3-2 scoreline, pipping Liverpool to supremacy in the English top-flight by a solitary point.

It should therefore come as little surprise to hear that the celebratory parade held on the blue half of Manchester on Monday resulted in a number of members of Pep Guardiola’s squad letting loose.
And, as alluded to above, one such star to have, in turn, stolen the headlines across social media late this evening comes in the form of Jack Grealish.
This comes owing to a host of footage surfacing of the English international, still hoarse on the back of what no doubt proved a memorable Sunday night, poking fun at his Man City teammates.
First on Grealish’s hitlist was Bernardo Silva, who endured one of his less productive outings of an otherwise brilliant campaign against Villa. In fact, it was the Portuguese making way for Ilkay Gundogan which essentially kickstarted the Citizens’ comeback, with the latter, of course, having gone on to bag a late brace.
Jack Grealish: “The main person I want to thank is Bernardo Silva for coming off in the 70th minute, because he was miles off it yesterday!” 😂

Silva, though, was sure to get his own back later in the evening, bringing his English teammate back into shot to assure that a key factor in his side’s title triumph was the decision to ‘keep Jack Grealish on the f**king bench’:

And the best was yet to come, as Grealish got boss Pep Guardiola involved.
After Kyle Walker was asked whether there is a footballer on the planet who could get the better of him in a one-on-one situation on the pitch, Grealish stole the microphone, to assure that he managed precisely that whilst still at Aston Villa – ‘that’s why Pep signed me’.
And Guardiola evidently saw the funny side of the exchange, footage of which can be seen below:
Jack Grealish is such good value. 🤣🍺
Even got Pep cracking up. 🤣
