Manchester City’s unbeaten run stretched to a Club record-equalling 28 games as they eased to a comfortable 4-1 defeat over Wolverhampton Wanderers to remain top of the English Premier League.
The city’s response was energetic as they hit three times in the final 10 minutes to deservedly seal a 21st consecutive win in all competitions.
Pep Guardiola’s side was in control from the first minute of the game and took the lead when Leander Dendoncker turned Riyad Mahrez’s cross into his own net in the 15th minute, but Conor Coady netted a surprise equalizer when he headed in from Joao Moutinho’s free-kick just past the hour mark.
The result boosted quadruple-chasing City 15 points clear ahead of Manchester United who is second in the table and scheduled to face Crystal Palace Wednesday.
The City’s forward Gabriel Jesus snatched his second and fourth in the final seconds, spouting in after Ilkay Gundogan’s 20-yard effort was parried back into his path, which was originally ruled offside but later VAR overturned it.
Wolverhampton manager Nuno Espirito Santo was at least looking for a draw but was thwarted as his side could not manage.
Santo disclosed: “Man City are showing through time how good they are, the quality they have. It’s no surprise. Everybody who faces Man City faces a very good team”.
He said it was a tough result adding they competed well for large spells recounting in the first half they were no a threat but in the second half they were able to achieve the draw.
