Erling Haaland scored again as Manchester City moved to the top of the Premier League table with a comfortable 3-0 win over 10-man Wolves at Molineux.
Jack Grealish opened the scoring in the first minute of the game before Haaland doubled the advantage soon after with his 11th Premier League goal of the season in just his seventh appearance in the competition.
Wolves’ problems were compounded when Nathan Collins was sent off for a wild and dangerously high challenge on Grealish that left Bruno Lage’s side with the unenviable task of facing the Premier League champions for an hour with 10 men.
Phil Foden’s second-half finish from Kevin De Bruyne’s assist his second of the game made it an easy afternoon’s work for Pep Guardiola’s team who remain unbeaten, the three points having also moved them ominously to the top of the Premier League table.
City had not been convincing in edging past Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday evening and with Wolves unbeaten at Molineux this season, there would have been some hope of a competitive game even if Diego Costa was not ready to feature for the home side.
But Grealish changed the mood after 55 seconds, converting De Bruyne’s cross from close range. The former Aston Villa captain found himself under scrutiny given his underwhelming form of late but his first goal of the season was some response.
