Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Manchester City - Football Match Report

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Manchester City - Football Match Report

But Pep Guardiola's side dug deep to fight back and Laporte rose to power in a superb 69th minute header to get the Blues back on level terms.

In an ominous warning to City's rivals, Guardiola claimed that a number of his players - particularly the seven who made the World Cup semi-finals - were still not at peak fitness and that his team would only hit their straps after the global break.

Boss Nuno Espirito Santo said: "We don't have to prove anything to anyone, just be ourselves".

Ilkay Gundogan claims that referee Martin Atkinson was "the worst performer" in Manchester City's 1-1 draw at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday. If I say to you the way I work this week and refer to the weakness then maybe I will ruin my gameplan so I will not do so.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola before the match.

Wolves have taken a single point from their two games so far, having lost 2-0 to ten-man Leicester the last time around. Every manager can do what they want with their teams.

"It's always good to win points but we wanted to win", he told the club's official website.

The reemergence of Benjamin Mendy after a sustained period on the sidelines with a knee problem has given the champions the width on the left flank thank he provided so effectively last season, nullifying the side's need for his input to some extent.

Though the champions, who had won their first two games of the season in handsome fashion, will be frustrated at their dominance not being rewarded, Wolves deserved their second league point and never stopped striving for a late victor. "We knew how good Wolves were last season and that they are strong with the players they have so we knew this would be a hard game already". The Catalan's disappointment with Leroy Sane's efforts in pre-season have come to the fore a year ago and this.

The Premier League's defending champions Manchester City are off to the their title's defence in the flawless manner. City was more deserving and the Wolves goal shouldn't have counted, but in the end, it's something on the road.

HIs understanding and movement has helped City evolve their tactics this season and, on the ball, he has shown just how unsafe he can be: he has created five chances from open play in two Premier League games - only two players, David Silva (six) and Henrikh Mkhitaryan (seven), have more.
