Wolverhampton Wanderers were the big underdogs before kick off but 90 minutes later the Wolves had claimed the scalp of the champions courtesy of two late goals from Adama Traore.
Wolves became the first team to beat Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in the Premier League at the Etihad Stadium whilst keeping a clean sheet.
Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo told BBC Sport afterwards how his team was able to beat the Citizens on their own patch.
“We played good, the performance was good but defensively was very good and very organised. The boys worked hard until the end. The fans enjoyed it.
“We had a couple of good chances early on but it is too difficult to play against Man City. They play so fast but the chances came eventually. More importantly is how the players did their tasks, very good.
“Adama Traore is improving, he is special because he is very fast, he is unique in that and we searched for a moment of talent, Adama did well.
“It has been a long season already, too many games, but we always compete. I cannot say any game they have not done that, this is the way we want to work, maintain and sustain this. The players go to their national teams and hopefully come back healthy.”
