It’s no secret that Premier League leaders Manchester City are exceptionally technically gifted when it comes to football.

But it turns out the City side are just as talented at providing off-the-pitch entertainment.

GETTY

City are 11 points clear of second-placed Liverpool

Following the Citizen’s impressive 1-0 victory over title rivals Chelsea, behind-the-scenes footage released by the club revealed the fiery atmosphere following the win.

And what better way to unwind after a hard day’s work than a game of tennis between Jack Grealish and Bernardo Silva?

The hilarious clip sees the two City stars face off in front of a crowd of eagerly watching City players, not to mention a stern-looking referee who also judges the clash in the form of Rodri.

A fiery Grealish took on a quietly confident Silva with the game neck and neck at 1-1.

However, the Portuguese international was quick to take the lead, leading 3-1, which he followed up with a Shakira-style celebration.

It is clear that the spirit in the dressing room is high at the Etihad.
