Jude Bellingham is proving each week that he’s indeed a top player.

The 20-year-old scored the only goal of the game as Real Madrid defeated Celta Vigo 1-0.

It had to take a late goal from Bellingham for Real to have won a difficult side managed by Rafa Benitez.

The goal marked Bellingham’s fourth goal after first three appearances for Real Madrid.

Only one player has managed to score for Real in his first three games in a white shirt – and it’s none other than Cristiano Ronaldo.

Interestingly, both players marked their introduction at Real Madrid with four goals in their first three appearances for the club.
