10 man Manchester City suffered a second defeat of the season at the hands of Wolves to stay 14 points behind leaders Liverpool, who have a game in hand.

Wolves scored two goals in the final 10 minutes after going 2-0 down to 10 men City to comeback and win the match 3-2 and move up to fifth in the Premier League table, thanks to goals from Adama Traore, Raul Jimenez and an 89th minute winner from Matt Doherty.

City lost 2-0 to Wolves back in October when Traore used his pace on the counter attack to score twice in the last 10 minutes as Guardiola's side pushed for a goal of their own.

In December though it was the opening 12 minutes that may have come to be the deciding factor, despite the two late goals again.

Pep Guardiola saw his side go down to 10 men early when Ederson was sent off for bringing Diogo Jota down after rushing out of his area.

Nuno Espirito Santo's side were unable to take advantage though as VAR gave City a penalty 13 minutes later after Riyad Mahrez was fouled and Raheem Sterling made it 1-0 on the second attempt, after a retake from his saved first effort after encroachment.

Sterling, playing up front after Sergio Aguero had been replaced to accommodate stand in 'keeper' Claudio Bravo, doubled the lead on 50 minutes.

Traore hit back just five minutes later to give the hosts hope of an unlikely point and they equalised with five minutes to go after Benjamin Mendy was caught in possession by Traore and the winger found Jimenez.

With time ticking away the west midlands' team won the game. Doherty and Jimenez played a one-two on the edge of the area and the Irishman went past two players before slotting past Bravo with only injury time to play.

The win leaves City behind Leicester City in third place and with little chance of catching Liverpool whilst Wolves move into fifth and two places from Chelsea and the top four.
