Gabriel Jesus set the champions on their way with a close-range finish at the end of a trademark City counter inside 10 minutes.

It was back against the wall for Wolves when Willy Boly was shown a straight red card for a lunge on Bernardo Silva on 19 minutes.

Jesus hammered home City’s numerical advantage with his second from the penalty spot six minutes before half-time, before a Conor Coady own-goal 12 minutes from time compounded Wolves’ misery.

Man City‘s fifth consecutive victory in all competitions sees them remain on the coattails of leaders Liverpool, while Wolves stay 11th, a point off the top half.
