Jack Grealish could not have asked for a better response to his growing band of critics as Manchester City beat Wolves 3-0 to emerge leaders of the English Premier League Log.
After having both his performances for Manchester City and his place in the England squad called into question, Grealish responded with his first goal of the season, after just 55 seconds, against Wolves on yesterday.
The forward was also at the centre of most of the visitors’ attacking play as he helped Pep Guardiola’s men cruise to a 3-0 victory.
The result sees City head into the international break on top of the table after scoring 23 times in seven Premier League matches, while in Erling Haaland they have a striker in red-hot form with 14 goals in nine games in all competitions.
The campaign is not yet one fifth of the way through, but already questions are being asked about how anyone can stop City becoming only the fifth English club – after Huddersfield, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United – to win three league titles in a row.
