Haaland and Man City on a trip to Wolverhampton

On their way, the Citizens made short work of Wolves and temporarily occupy the lead.

An indisputable victory. For the return of the Premier League, after the postponement of the 7th day last week due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II, Premier League: City largely won Wolverhampton and took the lead. The victory for Pep Guardiola’s men took shape very quickly. From the first minute of play, well shifted by Phil Foden on the right side, Kevin De Bruyne sent a millimeter cross to Jack Grealish who perfectly took the ball, while throwing himself, to open the scoring.

Erling Haaland continues, Wolves see red

A quarter of an hour later, it was the inevitable Erling Haaland who shook the net, for the eleventh time (!) of the season in the league. At the 16e minute of play, found in the axis of the field, without any direct opponent nearby, the Norwegian threw the ball at his foot. He then fixed Max Kilman before unleashing a low right-footed strike at the entrance to the penalty area. An attempt that José Sá, Wolves goalkeeper, was unable to repel. The « nightmare » did not stop there for Bruno Lage’s players. Shortly after half an hour of play (33e), Nathan Collins, guilty of a kick in the stomach of Jack Grealish, was logically returned to the locker room by the referee of the meeting, excellent this afternoon.

City new leader

In numerical inferiority, the Wolves did not deserve. In the second half, for about twenty minutes, they even posed serious problems to their opponents of the day thanks to their excess of energy and their technical quality. However, the talent was superior on the City side. And at the 69e minute, after a new cross from Kevin De Bruyne on the right side, Phil Foden made the mark worse with a clever little gesture. With this great success, the Citizens temporarily regain the lead in the Premier League with two points ahead of Arsenal, who play tomorrow on the lawn of Brentford. Wolverhampton, for their part, go down in 16e position.
