The Wolves vs. Man City match ended in a 3-0 victory for the defending champions, with goals from Jack Grealish and Erling Haaland.
Grealish opened the scoring after just 55 seconds, latching onto a cross from Kevin De Bruyne to give City the lead. Haaland then doubled the lead in the second half, tapping in from close range after a neat passing move.

Wolves will be disappointed with the result, but they will take heart from their performance levels. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side put up a good fight, but they were ultimately undone by two pieces of individual brilliance.
Wolves vs. Man City was always going to be an intriguing match-up, and it didn’t disappoint. Grealish and Haaland both showed why they are two of the most talented players in the Premier League, and City took another step towards reclaiming the title.

Record-man Haaland finds some new notes
The Wolves vs. Man City game ended in a victory for the latter, with a score of 3-2. Haaland was one of the star players of the match, scoring two goals and contributing to the team’s effort overall. His first goal came in the 48th minute, after he had dropped deep to collect the ball from Bernardo Silva. He then went on to score again in the 72nd minute, securing the victory for his team. This win takes Man City’s winning streak to 11 games in the Premier League, and 14 games in all competitions. Haaland’s impressive performance today means that he now has 24 goals in total this season – an impressive record that is sure to continue growing.
Grealish takes cue from Sterling to answer critics
Pep Guardiola’s faith in Jack Grealish was repaid as the winger scored the opener in Manchester City’s 2-0 win over Wolves.
Grealish has come in for criticism at times this season, with his return of three goals and three assists from 27 Premier League games falling short of expectations.
But he took his chance against Wolves, latching onto a pass from Ilkay Gundogan before slotting past Rui Patricio in the Wolves goal.
It was a superb finish, and one that will do Grealish’s confidence a world of good. He will hope to build on this performance in the coming weeks and prove his critics wrong.
