Manchester City beat Wolves, reclaiming their three-point cushion at the head of the Premier League, owing to Kevin de Bruyne’s sensational four-goal spree. Pep Guardiola’s club now merely requires 4 points from their remaining two encounters to finish ahead of the Reds and clinch their fourth crown in five years.
Nevertheless, this was De Bruyne’s occasion, and he immediately propelled his team-up. He was also committed in the build-up and was in the correct spot to hammer home the deflection after Jose Sa edged Raheem Sterling to the goal. His third net, which he struck with his “poor” left boot, was the finest of the lot, as he advanced to the edge of the box and curled into the bottom corner.
De Bruyne made it 4-1 with his maiden right-footed goal of the evening, striking no error after a Phil Foden ball was redirected into his direction and found the bottom corner. More possibilities occurred, with Foden slamming the crossbar and Sterling wasting a simple chance, but Sterling ultimately got in on the party, knocking into an open net after Sa prevented Joao Cancelo.
An incredible performance! 🔥
