Two days after his £100m move from Aston Villa, Jack Grealish made his debut for new club Manchester City on Saturday.

It was a return to Wembley just weeks after Euro 2020 heartbreak for Grealish but he was on the losing side again as Leicester City lifted the Community Shield.

City's blank in front of goal will only add to the speculation surrounding England skipper Harry Kane and a potential £150m+ move from Tottenham Hotspur to join the Premier League champions.

Kane did not feature in Spurs' friendly at home to Arsenal but local rivalries were put aside for Bukayo Saka who was warmly applauded by the Tottenham supporters.

£50m defender Ben White made his Arsenal debut.

Mason Greenwood missed out on the Euros but a potentially big season for the young striker started with a goal in the friendly with Everton after Jordan Pickford's error at Old Trafford.

Pickford had no chance with United's second, a thundering header from Harry Maguire past the man with whom he formed such a strong defensive unit during the Euros.
