Liverpool Go Eight Points Clear After Wolves Beat Manchester City 2-0 At The Etihad

Liverpool Go Eight Points Clear After Wolves Beat Manchester City 2-0 At The Etihad

Manchester City dropped three valuable points in the title race on Sunday after Wolves winger Adama Traore scored two late goals at the Etihad.

Pep Guardiola's side struggled throughout the game and in the 80th minute, a Wolves counter attack gave Nuno Espirito Santo's side a deserved 1-0 lead.

Nicolas Otamendi, who made a number of mistakes throughout the game, was caught out again when he missed a tackle on Raul Jimenez.

The Mexican forward cruised past the City centre-back before teeing up pacey winger Adama Traore, who slotted past goalkeeper Ederson to put the visitors ahead.

Traore then made it 2-0 in injury time to secure all three points for Wolves as the away side moved up to 11th in the Premier League ladder.

That man Raul Jimenez turned provider again for the pacey Spaniard, who showed great composure to slide the ball past a helpless Ederson in the 93rd minute.

Traore's goal means that Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool go eight points clear with just eight games played. The Reds secured all three points against Leicester on Saturday as James Milner scored a late penalty to seal a 2-1 win at Anfield.


Can Manchester City claw back the points in the coming months, or are Liverpool too far ahead at this stage of the season?
