Manchester City cruised to a comfortable three points at Wolherhampton after scoring three goals and not conceding a single to claw back a last-round draw against Aston Villa. Man of the match was Jack Grealish, who opened the scoring in the first minute and survived a horror red card tackle.
The 27-year-old midfielder returned to action just days ago after an injury sidelined him for more than two weeks. So he played a league game in the top English competition after almost a month, when he last played on August 21 against Bournemouth. His return to the league scene began in style as he scored in the first minute of the match to guide Manchester City to a 3-0 win over Wolves.
“I really didn’t realize it was only fifty five seconds before someone told me” said a surprised Grealish, for whom it was his first league goal of the season, in an interview with Manchester City’s website. “I thought about five minutes! It must be the fastest goal I’ve ever scored.” he continued.
However, this is not just a happy match for Jack. Less than half an hour later, Collins knocked him down with a kick to the chest. However, Grealish continued to play until the 76th minute when he was replaced on the pitch by Palmer, while Collins headed to the dressing room early after a clear red card.
