Wolves stun Man City with Traore double

Manchester City v Wolverhampton Wanderers - Premier League

Premier League champions now eight points behind Liverpool after suffering 2-0 home defeat

Adama Traore struck twice late on as Wolverhampton Wanderers stunned champions Manchester City 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

Wolves missed three great first-half chances through Patrick Cutrone and Raul Jimenez twice, while Rui Patricio denied Raheem Sterling at the other end.

City dominated possession in the second half, but struggled for clear-cut opportunities.

A David Silva free-kick hit the crossbar, while Bernardo Silva had a shot blocked by Conor Coady.

Wolves took the lead in the 80th minute on the counter-attack, Jimenez playing in Traore, who beat Ederson.

Traore's second in stoppage time was almost a carbon-copy. Again Jimenez broke and passed to the winger, who slotted past Ederson's left hand.

Wolves climb to 11th, with 10 points. A second defeat of the season leaves City second on 16 points, eight behind Liverpool.
