The Norwegian sensation’s stellar performance virtually secured his claim to the Premier League’s Golden Boot for a second consecutive year.

Super substitute Julian Alvarez managed to add his name to the scoresheet, compounding Wolves’ misery.

O’Neil, who watched the game from the stands, acknowledged that his team’s mistakes were severely punished by City’s ruthless attack.

While he disagreed with the first penalty call, he refused to blame the officiating for the outcome.

Instead, he took aim at his own team’s “costly and ridiculous turnovers” that made it “too easy” for City to dominate.

Speaking to BBC’s Match of the Day, O’Neil said:

We just made it a bit too easy for Manchester City. I was disappointed with the awarding of the first penalty, but more disappointed with the mistakes my own team made.”

Despite City’s undeniable strength, O’Neil believes his team should have put up more of a fight.

However, O’Neil remains focused on addressing his team’s weaknesses and bouncing back stronger in future fixtures.
