Wolves hold champions Man City with spirited display after controversy around handball goal

Sure, they enjoyed a few slices of good fortune, notably for their goal with Willy Bolys handball going undetected and a couple of penalty appeals that City had waved away, and their goalkeeper Rui Patricio also had a day to remember. But while Pep Guardiola managed to keep a lid on any frustrations with the officials, even if he seemed to be simmering with indignation beneath the surface, the City manager will probably be the first to recognise what a good job Wolves did against his side. From pressing high, with their wide players, Helder Costa and Diogo Jota, doing an excellent job of engaging Citys centre-halves, to the intelligence and vision of the superlative Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho in central midfield, Wolves ensured City were never going to have things all their own way. The possession statistics again heavily favoured City but it did not always feel like that watching this game, which spoke volumes for the efficiency with which Wolves used the ball and the pace and precision with which they attacked. As Kyle Walker, the City defender, said: It will be hard for teams coming here even if they might do so probably expecting to win. Sergio Aguero hit the woodwork twice for City, including clipping the ดูบอลสดออนไลน์ วันนี้ top of the crossbar with a free-kick in stoppage time, but even when Guardiola sent on the cavalry in search of the win, with Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane and Riyad Mahrez all entering the fray, Wolves refused to panic. Yes, Jesus should have scored with a header from close range from Benjamin Mendys cross only to be denied by another fine stop from Patricio but Wolves had chances of their own and, in the main, oozed cohesion. Wolves 1 - 1 Man City (Aymeric Laporte, 69 min) This game has to do with the base we created last season, especially at home, Santos said. We want to create a team and build something, an identity, that everyone at Wolves - the players, coaches, fans - share. It was a game that dazzled in quick-fire bursts. Vincent Kompany had as hard a time as any and it was his blunder, conceding possession to Moutinho, who kick-started the counter with a pinpoint first time pass into Jota, that almost presented Wolves with an opening goal. Jota swept the ball from the left across the six-yard box into Raul Jimenez but Wolvess No9 - who led the line superbly throughout - was ruled offside as he tapped home. It speaks volumes for the threat City pose that moments later Wolves were fortunate not to be two goals down. First Aguero hit a post and then Patricio produced the first of his handful of excellent saves when he tipped a thundering 25-yard volley from Raheem Sterling on to the crossbar. Costa was denied by a fine save from Ederson after the Wolves forward showed Aymeric Laporte a clean pair of heels but, from the resulting corner, the home team were in front. Moutinhos short corner was rolled back to him by Neves and his cross was a beauty.
