Manchester City managed to secure full points at Wolverhampton headquarters in the 2022/2023 English Premier League, week 7, Saturday (17/9/2022). The Citizens won 3-0 at the Molineux Stadium.
Jack Grealish, Erling Haaland and Phil Foden scored each of Man City ‘s winning goals. The goal scored by Jack Grealish was the most memorable.
Because, the former Aston Villa player scored a goal when the game had only been running for 55 seconds. The process of the goal was created from the first opportunity created by Man City .
Kevin de Bruyne moved to the right side, then crossed low. Grealish greeted him with one touch.
At the end of the game, when asked about the goal, Grealish was surprised that the goal was faster than he expected. It was his first goal of the season.

Grealish explained, he had never scored so fast. He felt it was the fastest goal he had ever scored.
“I think it was about five minutes! It’s definitely the fastest I’ve ever printed,” he said.

Grealish realized that he rarely scored a tap-in. However, his father had advised him for a long time to do the movement more often. And finally he did when he scored.
“My dad used to tell me every day, ‘Try to move in and score a tap-in’,” explains Grealish.
For me, this goal is good to mark the start of the journey in this season,” he added.
Grealish, as usual, remains concerned with the match played by Man City. Regardless of whether he scores or not, Man City’s three points are all that matters.
Moreover, with the victory while making Man City take over the leadership of the standings from the hands of Arsenal. Arsenal itself will play later to reclaim that position.
“It’s great to get points here. Because they are underrated, so I am satisfied,” said Grealish concluded.
