Man City can struggle against 5-4-1

Wolves vs Manchester City Preview: Probable Lineups, Prediction, Team News, Tactics and Key Stats Man City News: Why Pep Guardiola has dropped Leroy Sane

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City lost their first two points of the season with a 1-1 draw at Wolves, although the hosts' goal shoud not have counted.

The reigning champions were forced to dig deep to rescue a point on a day of mild controversy at Molineux, with Laporte's header in the 69th minute cancelling out Willy Boly's opener 12 minutes earlier that went in off his arm.

After failing to convince Premier League rivals of the need for video assistant referees (VAR), Manchester City has contributed more evidence why the technology is needed.

City responded via an unexpected source 21 minutes from time when Aymeric Laporte's towering header registered his first goal for the club.

City have won their last seven Premier League away games.

"That rumour of how good we are - we are a good team but the league is so long and we've done only three league games and there's a lot still to do".

It could so easily have been all three points with Sergio Aguero (twice) and Raheem Sterling all hitting the woodwork.

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.

Nuno's Wolverhampton Wanderers drew with Manchester City at the Molineux Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday.

Wolves have been a credit to their manager.

"If I say I admire the way [they play], I'm saying maybe the other ones I don't like it or I'm criticising them", Guardiola told a news conference. Wolves have their own style and beliefs and this was a tough and competitive game. "The Premier League will decide when they decide that VAR will be here".

"We played a 5-4-1 and we didn't create that many opportunities with that system last season, but today we did".

Wolves thought they had taken in the lead on 20 minutes through Raul Jimenez, but the Mexican striker was flagged offside when slotting the ball home.

The Wolves goal may have had a fortunate ending but it was set up superbly from Joao Moutinho's pinpoint cross and City's response was that of champions. "It's an identity you want to create", he said.

City were good value for their point but they looked unusually vulnerable against Nuno Espirito Santo's well-drilled side.
