The 27-year-old marked his 100th Premier League appearance with a goal, turning in Kevin De Bruyne’s cross and was Player of the Match with a rating of 8.8.
It only took Jack Grealish 55 seconds to prove the doubters wrong as Man City got their first goal in less than a minute after De Bruyne played the ball into the centre for Grealish to poke home.
Erling Haaland scored City’s second after being found in acres of space to become the first player in Premier League history to score in each of his first four away games in the competition.
Collins was given a straight red card for a careless tackle on Grealish, which undoubtedly hindered Wolves’ efforts to recover early in the match.
Despite the fact that the home team played better in the second half, City was simply too strong and added a third goal through Foden.
A goalscoring front-three for #ManCity! 😍

“I should be scoring more and getting assists. I’m always going to have people talk about me because of the amount I got bought for. Hopefully I repaid Pep for starting me after Wednesday” – A very honest post-match interview from Jack Grealish
As a result of the victory, City overtakes Arsenal at the top of the standings. They now have a goal difference of +17, which is by far the highest in the league after scoring three more goals.
For the time being, Wolves tumble to 16th, and their supporters will be hoping that Costa can help this team inject some much-needed attacking force in their next game.
