Matt Doherty stuns 10-man Manchester City to give Wolves thrilling win

Monday, 30 Dec, 2019

Wolverhampton Wanderers completed a double over Premier League champions Manchester City by coming from two goals down to win a classic encounter 3-2 at Molineux on Friday evening.

Liverpool have a big lead at the top of the Premier League but Ederson said City will not give up hope of chasing the Merseysiders down.

City awarded a penalty after the video assistant referee (VAR) confirmed that Riyad Mahrez was brought down by Leander Dendoncker. Sometimes it's tiredness (today).

City's stars looked visibly stunned, Kyle Walker furious as he stormed down the tunnel after they blew a two-nil lead. "Obviously, at the last stages of the season, you also focus on the other contenders for the title race, but there is still a lot of the championship left".

This is only the second time that a team manages to double over a Guardiola team in its managerial history, including its spells in Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

The result moves Wolves up to fifth but perhaps more significantly means City stay third behind Leicester and remain 14 points adrift of runaway leaders Liverpool. It is tough with our routine and the quantity of video games to have the identical time off, however we've executed it just a few occasions earlier than. Again, Patricio saved from Sterling but this time the England winger drove home the rebound to put City in front.

In the first flashpoint of a turbulent first half, Ederson was sent off after 12 minutes when he fouled Diogo Jota after the attacker ran.

Kevin De Bruyne's expertly timed through-ball cut the Wolves defence apart and with Patricio slow to come off his line, Sterling delicately chipped the ball into the net.

The 27-year-old full-back now has give goals across all competitions so far this season and is such a risky threat going forward.

"Now, because of certain errors and other situations, we are far away".

"We need to do our things in an intelligent way, a creative way, and I repeat I like the players that I have". The reality of the game changes when Manchester City has one man less. We made mistakes, but let's be fair to the game, everything changes when City have one man less.
