MANCHESTER CITY THRASH WOLVES 5:1

MANCHESTER CITY THRASH WOLVES 5:1

Kevin de Bruyne’s four-goal performance helped Manchester City beat Wolves and reclaim a three-point lead at the top of the Premier League.

Pep Guardiola’s team now just needs four points from their remaining two games to finish ahead of Liverpool and win their fourth title in five seasons.

De Bruyne was instrumental in all of City’s previous victories, but this was an individual performance that must rate among his best in a City shirt.

The Belgian created and finished the play that resulted to his team’s first goal, latching on to Bernardo Silva’s ball to slot home.

Wolves responded quickly, with a quick counter-attack culminating in Pedro Neto finding Leander Dendoncker in space on the edge of the box to strike past Ederson.

However, this was De Bruyne’s stage, and he immediately put his team back in ahead. He also contributed to the build-up, and he was in the correct location to slam in the rebound when Jose Sa beat Raheem Sterling to his ball.

His third goal, which he scored with his so-called weaker left foot, was the best of the lot, as he drove to the outside of the box and curled into the bottom corner.

De Bruyne’s hat-trick was his first for City and the third-quickest in Premier League history at 24 minutes.

He celebrated in style by imitating his soon-to-be teammate Erling Haaland’s meditation celebration, with whom City signed an agreement this week, but he wasn’t done yet.

City came out for the second half seeking to add to their goal differential, which was already three more than Liverpool’s before kickoff.

Raheem Sterling believed he had doubled their advantage when he went free and beat Sa, but his celebrations were cut short by an offside call.

De Bruyne made it 4-1 after a Phil Foden cross was diverted into his path, striking the bottom corner with his first right-footed strike of the night.

More opportunities followed, with Foden hitting the post and Sterling missing a simple chance, but Sterling ultimately got in on the act, tapping into an empty goal after Sa denied Joao Cancelo.

However, this was still the De Bruyne show. City aren’t done yet, and their next test is an unpleasant trip to West Ham on Sunday, but on this evidence, they’ll be hard to stop.

Laporte injury is a cause for concern

The sight of Aymeric Laporte and Fernandinho being taken off with injuries in the second half was reason for concern for Guardiola and City’s travelling fans.

City may have strengthened their attack for next season with the signing of Borussia Dortmund striker Haaland, but they are now lacking in defense.

With Ruben Dias, John Stones, and Kyle Walker already out for the season due to injuries, and Nathan Ake still not entirely recovered, Guardiola opted to start veteran midfielder Fernandinho alongside Laporte at Molineux.

Wolves were set up to take advantage of any sluggishness in City’s backline and, at first, looked menacing anytime they burst forward.

When Dendoncker equalized through that channel, sending the home fans into raptures, it appeared Wolves would guarantee City had a miserable night. De Bruyne, on the other hand, had other plans.
