Guardiola calm despite Man City stumble against Wolves

Manchester City dropped their first points of the season following a 1-1 draw at Premier League new-boys Wolves in Saturday's early kickoff.

Wolverhampton scored their goal in the 57th minute through Willy Boly who was assisted by Joao Moutinho in which Manchester City goalie Ederson had no option.

Having stormed to the Premier League title last season and started the new campaign in impressive style, life has been plain sailing for much of the past 18 months for Guardiola.

Mohamed Salah has struck again to ensure an underpowered Liverpool maintained their ideal early-season record in the 1-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion at Anfield and climbed to the top of the Premier League. "It's another game, but we need to be consistent, humble and respect the opponent and try to make a good game".

Aguero almost snatched three points with the final kick of the game, but the Argentine's free-kick clipped the crossbar with Patricio well beaten as City drop points for the first time this season.

Pep Guardiola has launched a passionate defence of Leroy Sane and insists last season's PFA Young Player of the Year still has a major role to play in his side. If I say to you the way I work this week and refer to the weakness then maybe I will ruin my gameplan so I will not do so.

Nuno's Wolverhampton Wanderers drew with Manchester City at the Molineux Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday. "Wolves deserve credit, of course".

"The amount of chances that we created, that tells us we could do more, should improve and try to win the game". "It's more hard to play this game but it's the way we work", he said. But against Everton during the Premier League's opening weekend, they showed incredible resilience to finish the game 2-2.

That effort came from a break that followed a disallowed goal for Wolves, who had Raul Jimenez flagged offside after he had tapped home a cross-shot by Diogo Jota.

"Unfortunately for us it was not like that and we conceded a goal". "It's an identity you want to create", he said.

"We are still not in the best condition, that's why we have to take points and hopefully after the global break we can be better and better", the City manager said.
