Manchester City entertained Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Etihad Stadium earlier this afternoon as they looked to earn a positive result at home in the Premier League. The Mancunian giants made a good start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 40th minute when Erling Haaland found the back of the net. Pep Guardiola’s men went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Haaland doubled his team’s advantage in the 50th minute from the penalty spot before going on to complete his hat trick just four minutes later. The contest ended with Man City securing an impressive 3-0 win in front of their home fans.

Let’s take a look at how each Manchester City player fared during the match against Wolves.
