Wolves devour Man. City in a dramatic comeback at Molineux

Wolverhampton Wanderers defeated reigning premier league champions, Manchester City, 3-2 in a dramatic comeback at the Molineux stadium on Friday night.

The host were given a first half sigh of relief after the Brazilian goalkeeper, Ederson Moraes received his marching orders following an attack on a goal-bound Diogo Jota in the 12th minute- his first ever since joining Manchester City in 2017.

Rather than utilizing the lacuna created by the visitors, Wanderers went behind in 25th minutes after a rebound from a retaken spot-kick by Raheem Sterling- VAR ruling over an encroachment by Rui Patricio. The Englishman would later increase the visitor's goal tally after the 50th minute finish- his 20th goal in all competitions.

The bizarre moments started after the former Barcelona winger, Adama Traoré went to hurt his Old boss in the 55th minute and with a Raul Jimenez's leveller in the 82nd minutes, the Citizens chances of victory became slim. With about 30 seconds before the hour mark, Matt Doherty lit the entire stadium with his low cross finish to give a perfect comeback.

Wolves are now two points away from the Champions League slot as City are 14 points adrift the league leaders, Liverpool.

Who can bewitch the Anfield Boys from reaching this long-standing Target?
