It finishes , and Wolves did well to keep it relatively respectable considering how comfortable the home side were from the moment of the first half sending off.
F ernandinho switches it up to Aguero on the left but it's cleared. It is unfortunately cleared pretty simply by City though.
W olves aren't doing anything wrong per se, they just cannot fill the hole left by Boly's departure. City are difficult to compete with at the best of times, let alone with 10 men. They do get a half chance as a ball is lobbed forward with a couple of their men chasing. Ederson bizarrely comes way outside his own box to clear the rare sort of dangerous ball from Wolves. Guardiola looks pretty unimpressed as the keeper plays a couple of passes from his dangerous position. The City fans on the other hand are loving it.
D e Bruyne goes for power again from his initial attempt, as he gets a foot to a loose ball in the area to launch it at goal. It's cleared for a corner, and that's when the goal comes. G oal-scorer Jesus comes off, Sergio Aguero replaces him. No let off for Wolves it seems. S ubstitutions made in the last couple of minutes:. S terling with a chance on another through ball, but Patricio reaches it first. A close one for Wolves again, who are simply playing to contain the champions. He'll be disappointed with his accuracy, but the blistering power made it threatening regardless.
C ity are coasting, passing and moving, gradually feeding the ball around inside Wolves' half. But suddenly a De Bruyne through ball reaches Sterling on the run inside the penalty area and Wolves are forced to clear it for a corner. Those sudden changes of pace are exactly where City are doing the damage, and you feel like a couple of goals will surely drop soon enough.

A nother City chance. Fernandinho scoops a pass over the Wolves back line to Sane who stretches but cannot reach the ball. Great vision there from the Brazilian nonetheless. A chance for Jesus this time, as a through ball reaches him but his close range shot goes straight into the goal keeper. A second look shows he was offside though. City enjoying 85 per cent possession so far this half.
Man City cut Liverpool's lead by beating 10-man Wolves
A great chance wasted. C ity use the three minutes of added time to apply passing pressure and dominance over their opposition. They're as comfortable as you'll see any Premier League team ahead of half time. W olves' entire team are back, so even as they try to make a break from a clearance there's really no one to send the ball to.
City pick it up and get another good chance. Jesus takes it - a stuttering run up to send the goalie left and he tucks it away on the other side. Two for Jesus tonight so far, his seventh in his last three appearances. Where can Wolves go from here? C hance for Wolves as they break to go three on three against City. Jimenez to Jonny who tries to find Jota in the centre, but he can't reach it. You wonder if he should have taken a shot there. But then we're back up the other side. Big chance there, and great pass and move football from Sterling.
M ore pressure from City, another goal feels inevitable. Sterling picks up the ball from inside the box after a lovely pass from David Silva but he is contained by Wolves defenders. This time it finds the head of a Wolves player, who can clear it only as far as an awaiting Sane at the top of the box - but his shot at goal is blocked. G reat chance for City, but slightly worrying moment too. That could've been an ankle-breaker. D avid Silva with a chance here. The home team are in complete control.

C ity take the lead in the first ten minutes with apparent ease. W olves in a threatening position around Ederson's box.
Jonny passes through to Jota right out by the corner flag but Dendoncker can't get a hold of it and City regain possession. Down to the other end of the pitch and Sane is given a little bit of space just inside the box to get a shot out, but it's blocked by Wolves' back line. City still with the ball and Sterling makes a play at crossing in from the right side but again it's cleared. C ity posing an attacking threat around the edge of Wolves' box early on but can't make headway into the danger area.
