Pep Guardiola has reacted to Manchester City's latest victory.

Off the back of a hard-fought 2-1 comeback win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, Manchester City defeated Wolves in convincing fashion with a 3-0 win.

The Premier League champions were in no mood to waste time, after Jack Grealish opened the scoring within 55 seconds of the clash.

After Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne played a sumptuous one-two, the latter put it on a plate for the Grealish, who scored his first goal of the season.

In the 16th minute, the one and only Erling Haaland registered his 11th league goal in seven games, after a smart finish from outside the box to hand City a two-goal cushion.

Things went from bad to worse for the hosts, after a dangerous challenge from Nathan Collins on Jack Grealish earned him a red card.

However, Bruno Lage’s side miraculously looked significantly better with ten men on the pitch, as Manchester City struggled to get a hold of the ball.

As Pep Guardiola’s side continued to face Wolves pressure, it took Phil Foden to settle the tie with a well-taken finish from close quarters.

Kevin De Bruyne was the provider once again, after linking up superbly with Erling Haaland to set up the ‘Stockport Iniesta’.

After his side got another three points at the Molineux Stadium, Guardiola shared his thoughts on the visitors’ result.

“The game started really well for us, and then we scored a second and a red card. To come here against this team, with the quality they have - Neto, Moutinho, Neves - they have the quality to transition so fast.

"It was an incredible victory. We struggled a lot - big compliment for Wolves. It was so important before the international break," said the City manager.

Discussing the possibility of key players picking up injuries during the upcoming international break, the Spanish tactician also stated: “Fingers crossed the players come back fit [from international duty]. I understand how important it is ahead of World Cup selection. Hopefully, they come back fit for the derby.”

City's next Premier League match will be against their local rivals, as the Blues look to further extend their unbeaten start to the Premier League campaign.

Concern already exists however for Kalvin Phillips, who has been forced to withdraw from the England squad for upcoming friendlies because of a shoulder problem.

The Blues' summer signing could even require surgery, according to various reports.

Phillips, who made his home debut from the bench against Dortmund in midweek, signed from Leeds United for £42 million this summer.
