City secured their 21st straight win in all competitions after Gabriel Jesus and Riyad Mahrez quickly extinguished any faint hopes of a Wolves revival after Conor Coady’s first ever Premier League goal.
Manchester City romped to a 4-1 victory over Wolves to record their 21st straight victory in all competitionsCoady managed to score with Wolves’ first touch in the City box, which was also his first ever Premier League goal from his first ever shot on target.
However, hopes of an unlikely point from an unlikely scorer quickly dissipated when Jesus scored his 38th goal from 53 appearances in all competitions at the Etihad.
The Brazilian striker was entrusted with a starting berth in place of Sergio Aguero and justified his position by putting the hosts back in front after Coady cancelled out Leander Dendoncker’s own goal.
Jesus then made sure of the victory when he tapped home after Rui Patricio spilled Ilkay Gundogan’s shot straight into the striker’s path.
City moved to 28 games without defeat in all competitions as they continue their incredible march to the Premier League title, the last time they went without defeat for such a long period was the incredible ‘Centurions’ of 2018.
While parallels between this side and the team from three years ago will continue to be drawn, they have scored 55 goals and conceded eight goals during this record-equalling run.
City are romping towards the title and look like an unbeatable machine capable of claiming all four trophies available to them this season.
While this may not be a season to remember for Nuno Espirito Santo and his men, there is no shame to losing the champions-elect – a side so relentless in the pursuit of yet another Premier League trophy.
