Rival fans have mocked Jack Grealish after being dropped to the bench for Manchester City's clash against Bournemouth today (August 13).

The Sky Blues released their starting lineup for their second Premier League game of the season, and the £100 million-man was named among the substitutes.

Despite winning the league in his first year at the club, Grealish was widely considered a disappointment as he struggled to find his best form.

He netted only six goals and made four assists in 39 appearances in all competitions, including scoring and assiting just thrice each in the Premier League.

🔵 𝗧𝗘𝗔𝗠 𝗡𝗘𝗪𝗦 🔵XI | Ederson, Walker, Dias, Ake, Cancelo, Rodrigo, De Bruyne, Gundogan (C), Mahrez, Haaland, FodenSUBS | Ortega Moreno, Stones, Grealish, Alvarez, Bernardo, Delap, Mbete, Lewis, Wilson-Esbrand#ManCity | @HaysWorldwide

It led to many labeling him an expensive flop as his performances were not worthy of such an exorbitant outlay. The Englishman has been accused of taking too many touches and slowing Manchester City's game down in the past.

He also missed two absolute sitters in their Champions League semi-final clash with Real Madrid that could've potentially changed the outcome of the tie.

The new season kicked off in a similar fashion for him as the 26-year-old had a forgettable outing in front of goal in their opening day victory over West Ham United. He failed to muster a single shot on target.

Seeing him being relegated to the bench has tickled rival fans pink, with some saying that's exactly where he belongs. Another fan called him the 'worst player in the league'.

Here are some of the best Twitter reactions:

@ManCity @HaysWorldwide PREALISH DROPPED DFKM 💀💀💀
@ManCity @HaysWorldwide Grealish on the bench where he belongs
@ManCity @HaysWorldwide No surprise to see Grealish dropped again. Such a shame he was so good for us. Now he’s one of the worst players in the league.
Grealish go chop bench this season
Grealish dropped already? 😬…
@gentlehoodlum Grealish should be benched forever lmao

Manchester City looking to make it two wins from two

Manchester City play their first home game of the season against Bournemouth, who're back in the English top flight for the first time since the 2019-20 season.

Having collected all three points on the opening weekend with a 2-0 win over the Hammers, the reigning champions are looking to make it six tonight in what could be an easy win.
