Goals from Ilkay Gundogan, Gabriel Jesus and Rodri as well as a Ferran Torres brace secured a comfortable victory for Pep Guardiola's side.
Granit Xhaka was sent off in the first half after a horrific challenge on Joao Cancelo.
Wright was watching the game with Premier League TV and cameras caught his reaction. It's a hard watch.
The 57-year-old is known for his bubbly personality and lights up any TV screen he appears on.
But even Wright couldn't find the positives in this performance and had to be consoled by son Shaun Wright-Phillips, who previously played for City.
"Don't worry, alright," Wright-Phillips said to his dad who looked visibly emotional. "Everything will be fine!"
That's a man who knows what is going on at his football club is not right.
Fans have reacted to the clip on social media and they're feeling the exact same as Wrighty.

Arsenal are now bottom of the Premier League after conceding nine goals in their first three games, all ending in defeat.
Pressure continues to grow on manager Mikel Arteta and he apologised to Arsenal supporters at full-time.
Speaking to BT Sport, the Spaniard stressed how important it is to 'fix' their current form.
"When you lose the game, it's impossible, but we had 3,000 fans today and you saw the way they reacted to the team, the club, the support they were giving was unconditional," he said.
"I'm sorry we can't get the results right now, we have to fix it.
"We're going to get a lot of players hopefully back and refresh our minds. We need to face the challenge."
