Manchester City stretched their winning run in all competitions to 21 games, after three goals in the final 10 minutes helped them to a 4-1 victory over Wolves on Tuesday evening.
As expected, City started in the ascendency and would take the lead when Riyad Mahrez’s cutback was diverted into his own net by Leander Dendoncker inside 16 minutes.
The hosts barely let their opponents have a kick for the rest of the first half and thought they had scored again just before the break, only for Aymeric Laporte’s strike to be ruled out for offside.
City continued to dominate until, incredibly, Wolves scored with their first shot of the game on the hour mark. Conor Coady was the hero, nodding home Joao Moutinho’s free kick to level up the scores.
Wolves then had a handful of additional chances before City began to dial up the pressure once again. Eventually this paid off, when Jesus capitalised on the chaos in Wolves’ box following Kyle Walker searching cross by smashing home from close range. Mahrez then put the game beyond all doubt, finishing calmly in the box after a mistake from Owen Otasowie.
Then with the last kick of the game, Jesus netted a second goal which took an infuriatingly long amount of time to be confirmed by VAR.
