The Citizens endured a forgettable afternoon as an Adama Traore brace powered Wolves to a shock 2-0 win away to the champions on Sunday.
The unexpected loss left Manchester City eight points behind Liverpool who edged past Leicester City on Saturday, reports Soccernet.ng.
Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan admitted to BBC Sport, after the match, that the Premier League table does does not look pretty to any member of Pep Guardiola’s squad.
“We should have played better. Wolves did well but we know how we can play and our qualities. We could not put that on the pitch today, that is the fact and it hurts.
“I always feel we can score, especially with the power up front but Wolves were very defensive in the last 10, 15 minutes and it was difficult to put in crosses and the spaces were tiny.
“It was very difficult to play. When you are not able to score the first goal, maybe we get nervous and don’t 100% feel the confidence is there and we have to be patient.
“The challenge now is to learn from that.
“When you are in front and top of the table, it feels great to look at it. Now it is tougher to look at it, there is quite a gap already and none of us are watching the table now. We will get opportunities in the upcoming months but at the moment it is something we have to accept and live with.”
