Manchester City hosted Wolves on Sunday, on Matchday 8 in the Premier League at the Etihad Stadium. City were on a good run in the Premier League but had the responsibility on their shoulders to face a very dangerous side in a ‘must-win’ match as in case of a negative result, Liverpool could open up to 8 points in front in the table. And that’s pretty much what happened. Thanks to Adama Traore’s late goals, Wolves beat the Cityzens at the Etihad and helped Liverpool out.

In the first half, as expected, City sought from minute one to control the game and move on to attack, but early on, unusual situations began to appear that gave clues that things could not end well for the hosts. Wolves had good chances, mainly through Raul Jimenez, and showed that were expecting only one slip from the Cityzens to score.

At halftime, Pep Guardiola made some changes as the team looked a little bit better. On 47 mins, David Silva’s free-kick from the right hit the post from Rui Patricio.

Despite this opportunity early on, City failed to keep up as much pressure as at the end of the first half and were inefficient in finishing.

City kept pressing and pushing hard for an opener, but they failed and even gave too many spaces for Wolves. At 79, the dangerous situation turned out to be deadly against City: in a fast counterattack, Jimenez set off at speed, left Otamendi on the middle ground and found Traore alone in the area. The striker finished in the corner, with no chance of defense for Ederson. 0-1 Wolves.

Aguero missed a good chance of leveling the game as Wolves responded with another counterattack masterclass. Traoré received the ball again from Jimenez, advanced from the middle to the edge of the area and found the nets in a finish at Ederson’s corner. 0-2 Wolves.

With the defeat, City parked at 16 points and sees the lead away, at least momentarily. Now the team only returns to the field on the 19th of October, when they visit Crystal Palace.
