Manchester City swept Wolverhampton Wanderers away at Molineux to continue their impressive run in the Premier League, a win that took the Citizens to the top of the table.
The away fans didn’t have to wait longer that 55 seconds before former Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish scored to put City ahead.
15 minutes later, it was unstoppable Erling Haaland again who gained possession inside the Wolves half, turn and run before firing a low shot past goalkeeper Jose Sa for his 11th goal in his seventh Premier League appearances and City’s second goal of the game.
With Raul Jimenez not listed for the game due to a groin injury and their latest acquisition Diego Costa still uunfit to take part in the game, it was always going to be a tall order to stop the Champions.
And Wolves’ problems were compounded just after the half hour mark when defender Nathan Collins received his marching order for a wild challenge on Grealish.
City eventually killed this contest when Phil Foden scored from Kevin de Bruyne pass, the Belgian’s second assists of the game.
The Champions still remain unbeaten so far this season after seven Premier League matches.
They Citizens will feature again in the league until 2 October when Manchester United visit Etihad Stadium for the first Manchester derby of the season.
