Manchester City conceded yet more ground to Liverpool in the Premier League title race after they threw away a two-goal lead away to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Matt Doherty sent the Wolves fans inside raptures on a memorable night at Molineux to effectively kill off the Premier League title race.
Raheem Sterling had put the champions 2—0 up at Molineux on Friday night after Ederson was dismissed inside just 12 minutes.
However, goals from Adama Traore and Raul Jimenez in the second half seemed to have secured a deserved point for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.
But Republic of Ireland international Doherty ensured Pep Guardiola’s men left with absolutely nothing
24 hours after Liverpool smashed Leicester City at the King Power Stadium, City have now dropped to third and are a whopping 14 points behind the champions-elect.
Sterling’s brace either side of half-time had given the visitors a commanding lead following a crazy first half.
The England international’s first came when he netted the rebound after Rui Patricio had twice saved his penalty, given by VAR.
The spot-kick was retaken after VAR ruled encroachment to add to a thrilling opening after Ederson was sent off for taking down Diogo Jota.
The Football Association will also investigate an incident when a hip flask appeared to be thrown at Sterling from the home fans after his first goal.
But Wolves’ second-half fightback left the defending champions third and 14 points adrift of Liverpool, with the Premier League crown surely heading for Merseyside.
The Reds also have a game in hand, with their rearranged fixture against West Ham taking place in January 2020 following their participation in the Club World Cup in Qatar.
