And we’re underway…
Marcal is forced off with an early injury. Vinagre comes on.
Wolves give away a free-kick just left of centre, about 25 yards out. De Bruyne is taking this and stings the palms of Rui Patricio with a well-struck but very saveable effort.
PENALTY TO MAN CITY! No complaints when Andre Marriner points to the spot.
GOAL! WOLVES 0-1 MAN CITY (De Bruyne pen 20)
Man City are still popping the ball around nicely – with De Bruyne just overhitting a ball through to Sterling and behind for a goal kick.
GOAL! WOLVES 0-2 MAN CITY (Foden 32)
Moutinho lifts the ball into the box, before Mendy makes a heading clear.
A poor defensive header from Moutinho in midfield is gobbled up by Sterling. He finds Jesus who nods it into the path of De Bruyne, who’s clean through from the angle and pulls a good save out of Patricio.
Two minutes added on.
HT: WOLVES 0-2 MAN CITY
We’re back underway.
De Bruyne finds Jesus as City break and as pinpoint as you like. The Brazilian takes it in his stride and has space with Coady not tight enough, but only finds the gloves of Patricio from just inside the area.
Jesus does the right thing and sticks the ball in the net but the flag does eventually go up for offside against the Brazilian.
SUBS! A double change for Wolves as Moutinho and Neto are replaced by Dendoncker and Fabio Silva!
GOAL! WOLVES 1-2 MAN CITY (Jimenez, 78)
SUB! City are making a change and it’s Sterling who is replaces by Torres.
There will be FOUR minutes of added time…
GOAL! WOLVES 1-3 MAN CITY (Jesus, 90+5)
FT: WOLVES 1-3 MAN CITY
