Wolverhampton Wanderers Surprise Manchester City, While Tottenham Triumphs Over Nine-Man Liverpool
Manchester City’s perfect start to the Premier League season came to an end on Saturday as they suffered a shock 2-1 defeat to Wolves at Molineux.
Ruben Dias’ own goal put the home side in front, and although City responded after the break through Julian Alvarez’s free-kick, Wolves grabbed the winner 25 minutes from time through Hwang Hee-Chan.
The defeat means that Liverpool can go top of the table if they beat Tottenham Hotspur in the late kick-off on Saturday.
Manchester United also suffered a setback on their home turf, losing 1-0 to Crystal Palace. Joachim Andersen’s stunning first-half volley separated the sides, and United were unable to find a way back into the game despite having plenty of possession.
The defeat sees United slip to 10th in the table, and it piles more pressure on manager Erik ten Hag.
