Pep Guardiola’s side’s extended 2019/20 season meant they missed gameweek 1 of the new term, while Wolves defeated Sheffield United 2-0.
42 mins: Wolves’ biggest threats have come from set pieces, they’ve not created anything from open play. They play a corner short and give it to Traore. He whips the ball into the box and Jimenez gets to it but he sends the header wide of goal.

36 mins: Wolves aren’t being allowed to play. This seems like a Man City side with a point to prove. Gabriel Jesus picks up a yellow card for leaving something on Saiss as he tackles him.
Mendy also goes in the book as he tussles with Traore and comes off worse. He brings down the Wolves winger and the home side have a free kick just to the right of City’s box. Moutinho flicks it in and Mendy clears.

Wolves 0 – 2 Man City – Foden
32 mins: GOAL! Give and go football gives Man City their second. Foden starts the move passing to Jesus. He lays it to De Bruyne who puts the ball into the box for Sterling. Foden is now in the area as well and Sterling squares it to him and he slots it into the back of the net. Easy.

30 mins: A triangle on the left edge of the Wolves area sees the ball move from Jesus to Foden to Sterling in the blink of an eye and Sterling bangs a shot across goal. The angle was tough and Rui Patricio is able to stop it.

27 mins: There was a feeling that Man City may have lost a bit of their awe as other teams begin to work out Pep Guardiola. Not so.
City have dominated every minute of this game, they’re quick, inivative, intense. Wolves are having to work really hard to stay one goal down.
