Manchester City lose 2-0 to Wolves, a result which sees City fall eight points behind Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table.

Adama Traore did the damage, scoring twice in the last ten minutes to put on our first home league defeat since December 2018.

It was a night to forget. Injuries continue to be the theme of the season.

On to the reaction:

Pep Guardiola Reaction

“It was not our best day. We started good, we wanted to be patient with our game because we know how good they defend.

“We let them run twice, got nervous a little bit and our process to create chances was not good. We had the problems on the counter-attack in the end and it was a bad day.”

“They defend. They play long balls and defend, they then go on the counter. It is physical team, a strong team so know how good they are.

“We know their qualities and we knew how they scored the goals. We were not organised, lost balls in positions we could not lose them in.”

”We had two chances, one onto the crossbar and with Bernardo Silva. They did really well. We are going to come back again to try.”

“The distance is big, Liverpool have not dropped points. Now is the time to come back. The results will dictate the situation but we are in October and there’s a long way to go.”

Ilkay Gundogan Reaction

“We are frustrated. We are sad, disappointed. We have to admit that today was not enough. It’s very unusual for us.

“Wolves did well. They had three or four situations where they were running through in the first half.”

”We struggled to create chances.”

We had a few, but in the end it was not enough and that’s how it is. It is difficult to take right now, especially with the international break, when you have two weeks with no club game. We have to do better after.”
