Grealish has a point to prove with England

Once again, Jack Grealish is joining up with the England squad with a point to prove.

The forward was a fans' favourite at last summer's Euros - but there was frustration his game time didn't correlate with his popularity in the stands.

Following his £100m move to Manchester City after the tournament, he finally became a go-to selection for England boss Gareth Southgate for the priority World Cup Qualifiers against Hungary, home and away, and Poland.

Yet, at the start of this World Cup year, an underwhelming first campaign at City has left him vulnerable to slipping out of Southgate's first-choice XI once again.

Two goals and two assists in the Premier League is undeniably a disappointing return from British transfer record-breaker Grealish.

The five other players vying to play off striker Harry Kane in this current England squad each have more goal involvements in the top-flight this term. So do the left-out Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford and injured Jarrod Bowen.
