Wolves Winger Daniel Podence Pulls Off Outrageous Nutmeg On Kevin De Bruyne
Wolves winger Daniel Podence has produced the skill of the season so far, managing to nutmeg Kevin De Bruyne.
Nuno Espirito Santo's side welcomed Manchester City to Molineux on Monday evening and found themselves 2-0 down in the first half.
However, they showed fight in the second half and a moment of magic came in the form of Podence's assist for Raul Jimenez.
The Portuguese winger received the ball on the far side and dinks it through De Bruyne's legs, before floating a ball over to Jimenez to head home and bring the score to 2-1.
Close those legs, @DeBruyneKev!
Podence pops it through his legs before crossing for Jimenez to head home. Game on!

Fans have reacted to the lovely bit of play and they think the PFA Player of the Year looked rather foolish.
All of Kevin De Bruyne's assists now belong to Daniel Podence.

2-1. Wolverhampton pull one back and Manchester City was asking for it the entire second half. Brilliant header from Jiménez after a great cross from Podence. pic.twitter.com/vYUgvF4YKC

De Bruyne did get the last laugh in the end as City ran out 3-1 winners in their first Premier League outing of the season.
The Belgian scored a penalty in the first half after Romain Saiss hauled him down in the box.
Phil Foden then doubled City's lead later 12 minutes later and Pep Guardiola's side looked comfortable.
But they took their foot on the gas in the second half and Wolves pushed to get back in the game.
Jimenez halved the deficit in the 78th minute before Gabriel Jesus added a third in injury time to seal all three points.
