Manchester City fell to Wolverhampton on Friday because of an Adama Traoré who scored a goal and assisted in another. The Guardiola went ahead 0-2, but the Wolves ended up going up. Ederson was expelled at the start of the match
When it seemed that things could not get worse for Manchester City, Adama Traore and his Wolves arrived to sink more Pep Peppers. Those of Nuno went back to the 'cityzens' and took the victory in their stadium 3-2. A double from Sterling ahead of the English champion, who had to survive with almost 10 the entire match after the expulsion of Ederson in the 10th minute. Adama cut distances in the second half, Raúl Jiménez tied and Doherty, past the former Barca player, put the definitive 3-2.
The goal of the Wolverhampton player ended the almost null hopes of the City to compete in this Premier League. Right now, the 'cityzens' have 14 points less than Liverpool, which also has yet to play the clash that could not play for the Club World Cup. The 'reds', therefore, could be placed 17 points above those of Guardiola if they manage to win that match.
The game was not easy for the 'Sky Blues', who watched as the referee expelled Ederson, his goalkeeper, in the 12th minute. The Brazilian saw the direct red after a bad start in which he knocked Jota out of the area when the Portuguese already faced the goal to score. The Catalan coach then decided to sit at Kun Agüero to get Claudio Bravo out. The City was left without reference above, although Sterling would remedy that with its mobility.
The Wolves, despite the superiority, did not finish entering the clash in the first half and made many mistakes. In the 23rd minute, Dendocker made a clear penalty to Mahrez that Sterling would fail soon after. Fortunately for the Englishman, the referee sent him to repeat for the entry of a Wolverhampton player in the area. The former Liverpool, however, would not take advantage of the gift and Rui Patricio was ready again and stopped the maximum penalty again. The rebound, though, was too much for the Portuguese and Sterling ended up taking advantage of it to put the 0-1.
Those of Nuno could not with the City and only Adama Traoré created danger with their incursions by band. The former Barca squad, who would end up being the great protagonist of the second half, could score in the first 45 minutes, but Bravo took his shot. The end, despite his mistake, kept trying and after passing through the locker room he ended up finding his prize.
Adama and the Wolves soared after the break
Earlier, Sterling seemed to leave the game for the 'Sky Blues' on track with 0-2 in the 50's. The English striker, more and more top scorer, failed against Rui Patricio after a great pass from Kevin de Bruyne, who It is also at a spectacular level. Despite being with 10, the Guardiola were well planted in the field and the victory did not seem as impossible as when Ederson was expelled in the first half.
But the joy did not last long for the 'cityzens', who saw as only five minutes later Adama gave the first blow by cutting distances. The L'Hospitalet de Llobregat scored with a great shot from outside the area that entered the goal defended by the Chilean. The Wolves squeezed a lot since then and Saiss and Doherty touched the goal with two good headers. The 1-2, however, came after a great robbery of Adama on Mendy and a good later pass from the Catalan so that Raúl Jiménez scored at pleasure.
After the Mexican's target, there were still more than ten minutes left until the end of the game. The City already took the point for good and tried to withstand the rush of a grown Wolverhampton that went for the three points to establish itself in the fifth position of the Premier. In the end, in '89, a great heel of Raúl Jiménez over Doherty gave way to a very good oriented control of the Irish before getting into the area and putting it with the left to the right of Bravo. With that goal, the Wolves culminated a spectacular comeback to sink Guardiola and his Manchester a little more.
