Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, has asked England’s sensation Jack Grealish to express himself more.

Grealish opened the scoring in the 3-0 Premier League victory over Wolves on Saturday after only 55 seconds.

It was the longest such streak in the club’s league history as City extended their undefeated away streak in the English top division to 22 games with additional goals from Erling Haaland and Phil Foden.

After being replaced in the 58th minute of the Champions League triumph against Borussia Dortmund last week, Grealish praised Guardiola for starting him, but the City manager is not interested in praise from his team.

Guardiola said:

“I unconditionally trust all of them and I trust him unconditionally.

“He scored a goal and every time he had the ball, he was one against one when he took on the full-back all the time, all the time, all the time.

“But he has to play for himself and give the best of himself because that’s what I’m looking for.

“I’m happy with him, happy with the victory and Jack has an incredible personality to play and that’s why I’m happy for him, but they don’t have to say thank you.

“I just want the best for themselves every time they play – this is what we are looking for.

“He has to be who he is in the good moments and in bad moments that everyone has.

“He has to say, ‘I am Jack Grealish, this is who I am, I go there with a good mentality and try to the best for myself and my team-mates’.”

Guardiola was full of praise for former Borussia Dortmund defender Manuel Akanji.

He made his Premier League debut at Molineux, hailing the 27-year-old’s “perfect temperament”.

Guardiola said:

“He was more than exceptional.

“He is so, so clever. Whether the play is short or long.

“When he goes, he goes, but not too much to give away a penalty or cause fouls.

“He is aggressive to go across the opponent and has the perfect temperament to control the situation. Really, good.

“And John [Stones] was brilliant at full-back, and I’m so happy he could do it two games in a row because we need him.”
