After seeing Manchester City defeat Leeds 3-1 at Elland Road, Jack Grealish has been challenged by Pep Guardiola to score goals.

Guardiola’ team put on a strong performance and easily won, but it could and arguably should have been much easier.

Grealish had three excellent chances to score in the opening period but failed to take any of them.

Ultimately, he delivered by setting up two goals for Erling Haaland in the second half, although Guardiola acknowledged that he still desired to see from the former Aston Villa player.

“Grealish made two assists, he allowed us to give an extra pass when he had it,” Guardiola told Amazon Prime.

“With Riyad [Mahrez] and Jack the tempo was better, but he has to be ambitious. He has to score goals and be competitive because he has the quality to do it.

The win saw Man City cut Arsenal’ lead at the top of the Premier League to five points, and Guardiola was happy to get the win considering Leeds had the whole break to prepare for the fixture.

“We played really well against this team in this stadium,” he said. “We made a great performance in the second half when they were a bit open.

“After the World Cup, nobody knows how we were going to react and the way Leeds were playing lately. Today with the ball we were brilliant.”
