Manchester City were left eight points behind Liverpool after a 2-0 home defeat by a Wolves side that wasted early chances but took the points thanks to Adama Traor
Wolves opener had been coming when Adama Traor finished coolly past Ederson with only 10 minutes remaining. By the 95th-minute of the contest the Spaniard had added a second and Manchester Citys patched-up defence had proved the liability that was Pep Guardiolas concern when Nicols Otamendi and Fernandinho became the centre-back pairing because of injuries to Aymeric Laporte and John Stones.
City had dominated the ball throughout but lacked verve near Rui Patrcios goal and were vulnerable at the back all afternoon.
Traors first strike, in particular, was all of this in microcosm. A City attack broke down and Ral Jimnez made a mug of Otamendi then found Traor, who finished coolly. For his second, Fernandinho was exposed, Rben Neves put Traor through and again he made no mistake.
