Wolves pulled off one of the shocks of the weekend as they defeated reigning Premier League champions Manchester City on their own patch to add further woe to their title hopes.
Pep Guardiola’s side now sit some eight points behind league leaders Liverpool while Wolves have enjoyed an upturn in form with three straight victories in all competitions.
Adama Traore netted a brace inside the final ten minutes to secure the victory at the Etihad Stadium.
There was an early scare in the first half when utility man Romain Saiss suffered a hamstring injury and had to be substituted in just the 13th minute.

Luckily, Nuno Santo was able to call on centre-back Ryan Bennett, who in recent games has been dropped.
But he reacted like a true professional to help his side record a clean sheet against a frontline containing Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling, who have scored 14 goals between them already this season.
Several fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the occasion with one supporter claiming it was ‘well deserved.’
Another member of the Molineux faithful believes Bennett has been one of the best signings the club have made in recent times while one more hailed him as a ‘top professional.’
Here’s the best of the reaction:
hopefully many more to come. congrats benno very important member of the pack
