Defending champions Manchester City continued their pursuit of Liverpool with a resounding and comfortable 3-0 win over 10-men Wolves at the Etihad.

The win helps the Citizens to close the gap back to four points, with the title race taking an interesting shape with every passing week.

Gabriel Jesus scored a brace while Conor Coady helped one over the line for the home side in a one-sided affair. A defence-splitting pass from Aymeric Laporte found Leroy Sane’s run on the left-hand side.

The German then had an easy task to square the ball for Jesus to tap in from close quarters in the 10th minute.

Willy Boly was sent off for the away side in the 19th minute after a rash tackle on Bernardo Silva. City doubled their advantage five minutes before half-time when Raheem Sterling was brought down by Ryan Bennett inside the box. Jesus was on hand to convert the spot kick.

Pep Guardiola’s men probed after the break but Wolves played for pride stood firm. The final goal of the game when a whipped Kevin de Bruyne cross found its way in via a touch from Coady.
