Haaland scored the game’s first goal with a thunderous header past Sa as the hosts took control throughout.
He headed home the opening goal through a right wing cross from Kevin De Bruyne. A flawless assist from Riyad Mahrez led to his third goal.
Neves tripped Gundogan in the second half, resulting in a penalty that the Norwegian converted, and Sa turned the ball over four minutes later, allowing Haaland to tuck in Mahrez’s cross.
A volleyed attempt by the Algerian was disallowed due to a slight offside, while Grealish also had a shot blocked.
With the win over Wolverhampton, Manchester City has secured a total of 45 points in 20 games, two points behind league leaders Arsenal, who have 47 points in 18 games.
