Manchester City have made it 21 wins in a row, edging past Nuno Espirito Santo’s Wolves within the Premier League.
Manchester City extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to fifteen points tonight by beating Wolves in a tight contest.
City have made it 21 wins in a row now, moving another three points further from Manchester United – for twenty-four hours a minimum of – as they still take complete control of the title race.
Wolves did the double over City last season and defended well against the Blues even as Pep Guardiola predicted they’d. Guardiola made six changes to his side from the West Ham win, bringing back the likes of Aymeric Laporte, Joao Cancelo, Rodri and Raheem Sterling.
City took the lead in a dominant first half, Leander Dendoncker scoring an goal struggling from Raheem Sterling. Conor Coady equalised after the break, but City responded well, Gabriel Jesus and Riyad Mahrez scoring late on. Jesus was given a second with the last kick after a VAR review.
