Earlier today, at the Etihad Stadium, based on the two goals of Adama Traore, Wolves beat the local team by a 2 – 0 goal. Both two goals have come from the counter-attacks. After the year of 1979, in the top flight of English football, it is the very first victory of the Wolverhampton Wanderers. If we consider the last 45 league matches of Manchester City, it is the 2nd time that the team of Pep Guardiola failed to find the net. Before that in May 1918, against Huddersfield Town, Man City could not score goals at their home venue.
Wolverhampton Wanderers used to play counter-attack and against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, they started the game like that. And since then, within the first 22 minutes, the guest team found three chances of going ahead but all three times, the title-holder was saved.
FT! Manchester City 0-2 Wolves.
A remarkable result at the Etihad, with Adama Traore netting twice for Wolves.

In the 8th minutes of the game, Cutrone found the Man City goalkeeper alone but missed his shot and in the 20th minute, the Italian forward took another attempt but missed. If we consider the ball possession, Man City was far ahead and in the 66th minute, they got a real chance. But, the amazing free-kick of David Silva was stopped by the post. Ten minutes later, the current champion missed another good chance. In the 80th minute of the game, the fans of Man City was shocked. The Spanish forward Adama Traore escaped the goalkeeper and found the net. In the 4th minutes of the additional time, Adama Traore became one man army. He alone secured the game by scoring the 2nd goal.
