Manchester City lost their first game of the season in the Premier League after losing. Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-1 and their second consecutive defeat in all competitions. After previously losing to Newcastle United 1-0 in the Carabao Cup
It was a disappointing night for Pep Guardiola’s men as Erling Haaland lost his form after being tackled by Wolves defender Ruben Dias for an own goal, while Nathan Ake was burned to a crisp by Neto.
What happened at Molineux Stadium? Here’s what we saw from last night’s โปรโมชั่น ufabetgame.
Manchester City’s offensive game was completely stiff in the first half.
Manchester City had close to 70% possession in the first half, however things did not turn out as they expected. Because they scored an own goal in the 13th minute and were unable to convert their own chances.
Jeremie Dogu looked at his flashiest and most dangerous as he found five shots in the first half. But none of them were on target, while Phil Foden and Mateo Kovacic had a chance to shoot but were stuck in the Wolves’ defense block.
It was a difficult first 45 minutes for the visiting team from Manchester. Because of the tight defensive wall and also having Jose Sa who is tough.
To make matters worse, the visiting team fell behind at halftime. Even though the home team couldn’t find a chance to shoot into the box. (Goal that came from Ruben Dias’ own goal)
Enemy number 27 of Wolves
Matheus Nunes knew this would happen. Boos from the home fans every time the Portuguese midfielder touched the ball. That’s normal when players force their agencies to let them move to different clubs.
Nunes admits joining Manchester City was an opportunity he couldn’t turn down. That makes sense. Because everyone knows the greatness of “The Blues” and having a manager like Pep Guardiola hold the reins.
But that has come at the cost of some of Wolves’ fans screeching and cursing, which we saw in last night’s game.
Nunes was substituted at half-time, with Pep reasoning that it was tactical reasons and sent Oscar Bobb to replace him, but he didn’t know that deep down he had removed the French football star because he was enduring pressure from. Can’t the local cheerleaders?
