Gabriel Jesus on the score sheet as City secure convincing 3-1 win over Wolves
With Sergio Aguero still out injured, the Brazilian forward was chosen to lead the line and appeared to do just enough as the marksman upfront. In general, it was a convincing win for Pep Guardiola’s side and they were the better side for virtually all of the game.
Manchester City started their 2020/21 Premier League campaign with a convincing win over Wolves at the Molineux stadium.
Having lost this fixture last season, all eyes were on Guardiola’s men to avoid a repeat of last season’s result.
Asides that, the Citizens are also one of the strong favorites for the title this time around as they look to regain their crown from Liverpool.
City dominated from the onset and it was no surprise the first goal came early. Kevin De Bruyne was fouled in the area in the 20th minute and converted the penalty himself. Just 12 minutes later, Phil Foden grabbed a second for his side after a neat play that saw Sterling feed him from the flanks.
Raul Jimenez pulled one back in the 78th minute to give hopes of a comeback. All of that was put to bed when Gabriel Jesus fired home in the final stages of the game. In all, it was a convincing win for Guardiola and City.
Gabriel Jesus might feature more often this season with Sergio Aguero already showing signs of ageing and poor fitness of late.
The Brazilian is once again on course to lead the line for City when they travel to Leicester City in pursuit of another win on Sunday.
