Jack Grealish breaks Frank Lampard’s 15-year record as he becomes the leading English player for most chances created in a single Champions League season.
Lampard had held the record with 34 chances created for Chelsea in the 2007/08 Champions League campaign.
But Grealish’s impressive performance in Manchester City’s 4-0 win over Real Madrid on Wednesday evening has now put him on 35 chances created in the Champions League this term.
The former Aston Villa captain, who joined City in a £100 million deal in 2021, also has the chance to extend that tally against Inter in the Champions League final on June 10.
‘I am just buzzing to be in this moment. It’s so nice.
I don’t think a lot of teams would be able to do that against Real Madrid.’
‘We felt unstoppable. I don’t know what it is.
‘I saw a stat the other day about our record here in the Champions League, we have won every game here in the competition – it’s unbelievable.
‘We feel unstoppable at this season and nobody can beat us: when you see what we did tonight, and against Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig, it’s unbelievable.’
