HIGHLIGHTS: CITY 0-2 WOLVES
City lost 2-0 to Wolves, a result which sees us fall eight points behind Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table.
Adama Traore did the damage, scoring twice in the last ten minutes to inflict our first home league defeat since December 2018.
It was Wolves who had the first good chance of the game when Patrick Cutrone found himself one on one with Ederson, but the striker miscued his effort and let City off the hook.
Then came a thrilling, end-to-end passage of play. Riyad Mahrez’s volley looked to be heading in but for Connor Coady’s timely headed clearance, but Wolves went straight up the other end and forced Fernandinho into last-ditch heroics, first sliding in to block Raul Jimenez’s effort before heading Cutrone’s effort away whilst lay on the floor.
It was superb defending from the Brazilian.
City were looking somewhat pedestrian, our usual high-intensity passing and pressing absent, and Wolves were frequently getting in behind our backline. Nicolas Otamendi’s loose ball saw Jimenez race clear again, but Fernandinho did enough to put him off at the last.
However, two late goals from Adama Traore settled a miserable afternoon for the champions.
