Wolverhampton Wanderers took advantage of 10 man Manchester City as Nuno’s side fought back from 0-2 with three second half goals to pick up the three points in a thrilling game at Molineux on Friday.

Pep Guardiola’s side were reduced to 10 men after only 12 minutes when goalkeeper Ederson took out Diogo Jota when one-on-one from a route one long ball.

However, the visitors were awarded a penalty by VAR when Riyad Mahrez was tripped inside the area. Raheem Sterling saw his initial effort saved but was awarded a retake by VAR as Conor Coady encroached. Sterling’s second attempt was also saved, but this time the England star tucked home the rebound.

Sterling made it 2-0 for the visitors five minutes into the second half and the game appeared to be over for the hosts.

In the final 10 minutes, Benjamin Mendy was careless to concede possession to Traore inside his own penalty area to allow the forward to setup a goalline tap in for Raul Jiminez. 2-2.

Matt Doherty scored a superb first time left-footed strike from the edge of the penalty area to pull off the comeback in the final minute.
