Wolverhampton Wanderers were beaten 4-1 by Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium last night.

The hosts dominated the game, but were made to work a little for the result after Conor Coady’s shock equaliser after Leander Dendoncker scored a first-half own goal.

City kept their composure though and rallied to score three times in the final 15 minutes.

Wolves briefly had wind in their sails after the goal, but were quickly dispatched in the end, with ruthless Ciy recording a 21st straight win.

Riyad Mahrez was probably the star of the show, and bagged the hosts’ third of the evening after Owen Otasowie had lost the ball in his own penalty area.

The USA youngster was sent on at 2-1 down by Nuno Espirito Santo for his first minutes in two months.

It was a clear mistake from the 20-year-old to try and dribble out of trouble, and he has come in for criticism for the action.
