Manchester City kept up the pressure on Liverpool and kept their three-point lead over the Reds. This match was all about Kevin De Bruyne. He obviously opened the scoring for City. However, Wolves responded quickly. The goal came from a lightning-quick counter-attack and the goal was scored by Leander Dendoncker.
However, that was it for the Wolves. Then, it was all about De Bruyne and City. De Bruyne completed his hattrick within the first half only. His second and third goal came from his weaker left foot.
The fourth goal also came from De Bruyne’s foot. He nearly got his fifth, but the woodwork came in his way. However, City did get a fifth after Raheem Sterling scored.
