Good building game from City outside the Wolves box but the layoff is behind Grealish. The winger sets up for a curler but his shot is over the bar.

Neto now finds himself on the right side and his angled shot misses the far corner of the goal.


Neto drops inside the penalty area under Akanji’s shoulder challenge but the referee calls for a handball against the Wolves striker instead.


And just like that, Haaland gets another goal! A record Premier League away goal and his 11th of the Premier League season. He runs towards the Wolves defense and fires a low kick with his right foot into the bottom corner.


Moutinho’s free kick goes for a corner.


Rodri pushes Podence back just outside City’s penalty area and the referee awards a free kick. Rodri enters the book.


Wolves are putting pressure on City’s backline now with their possession and build-up play.


On a corner, Rodri blocks Sa on the ball before putting the ball in the net but the referee refuses the goal for fault.


The wolves respond sharply. Podence sends the ball to Neto on the left, who rushes into the box and forces a save on Ederson.


It took less than a hundred seconds for City to take the lead. De Bruyne plays the ball to the right of Foden, who holds and releases to find Bruyne’s run down the flank. The Belgian places a dangerous low cross into the box for Grealish to send the ball into the net! It’s his first goal of the season.


City in their sky blue home shirt kicks off at Molineux. Wolves fans are out loud.

Tributes continue to pour in after the death of Queen Elizabeth II. The players stand in the center circle as the stadium observes a minute’s silence. This will be followed by the British national anthem “God Save the King”.

Guardiola defends Grealish

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has come to the defense of Jack Grealish amid criticism over his attacking output, saying the Premier League champions failed to sign the midfielder for his goals and assists.

The England international scored six goals and registered 10 assists for Aston Villa in the 2020-21 Premier League season, before joining City in August last year for a record £100million (114, $12 million).

However, Grealish has struggled to replicate those numbers since moving to Manchester and has failed to score or assist this season.

The 27-year-old was criticized for his performance in City’s 2-1 Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday after he was unable to influence the game and was taken off as part of a treble change in the 58th minute.

“We didn’t sign him for the incredible goals and assists he got at Aston Villa. That was another reason,” Guardiola told reporters ahead of City’s league trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers later. Saturday.

“When he played he did, but he also competes with the best, the best players. He knows it perfectly well but never complains. He’s a nice guy. In the game he’s the he was one of the first players to help the team and during training sessions he is always there.

“So I’m delighted with his behavior and everything. He understands us, we can understand him and he just needs to have a bit of continuity which I tried to give him and because he deserves it.”

City are second in the league, trailing leaders Arsenal by one point, while Wolves are 15th in the table.


No player has scored in their first 4 away games in the Premier League. Haaland has managed three out of three so far…
