Man City has gone eight points adrift Liverpool in the title race after being beaten at home by Wolves. Adama Traore netted twice in the final 10 minutes as Wolves triumph in the top flight at Man City for the first time since 1979.
Adama Traore sent-in the first goal at the first 10 minutes from time as Wolves utilized a mistake from Joao Cancelo, and he later sent in the second one on the break deep into injury time.
Following the loss, Manchester City have gone down five points in their opening four home games of the season, having dropped just three in the whole of last season and seven the year before that. David Silva came closest for the hosts when he hit the bar with a second-half free-kick. City’s Raheem Sterling also had a shot prevented in the scramble that followed.
This is the second time in 45 league matches that Man City did not score even a goal. When that happened last at home in the league was against Huddersfield on May 2018, when they had already won their first title of the Guardiola era.
Meanwhile, Adama Traore who scored twice hadn’t scored since September 2018 but he took advantage as Wolves twice broke clear of the home defense and Raul Jimenez assisted the goals on both occasions.
The current Wolves victory against City marks 20 years since Wolves last beat them away from Molineux and 40 since they did the same in the top flight. The impact of this win could have a significant look at the title race, another good part of it all is the margins in the battle between the champions and leaders Liverpool.
City and Wolves had both been engaged in European combat this week – and the fact City were at home, rather than traveling 4,000 miles to Turkey and back – and had an additional two days’ rest, should have given them a clear advantage.
