Aston Villa star Jack Grealish has jokily accused Bukayo Saka of lying about his goal for Arsenal against Chelsea being deliberate.
The youngster scored a delightful lob over Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy in yesterday’s 3-1 Boxing Day win at the Emirates Stadium, but it isn’t clear if he meant it as a shot or as a cross.
Saka seems to be hinting he didn’t mean to try lobbing Mendy, tweeting that he saw the Blues ‘keeper off his line, though this is followed by a winking emoji.
This prompted Grealish to post a mocking response, accusing Saka of being a liar…
It’s interesting to see Grealish get involved in this, but it makes sense that he wanted to take the opportunity to poke fun at his England team-mate.
The Villa star is enjoying a superb season and seems to be enjoying life in general as he clearly enjoyed Arsenal’s win over Chelsea yesterday.
