Champions Man City have dropped their first points of the 2018-19 season courtesy of a 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux this afternoon.
The defending champions – who had quickly reassumed their place at the top of the table courtesy of a 6-1 win over Huddersfield Town last time out – came closest to breaking the deadlock in the first half when Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling both hit the woodwork within a minute of each other.
However, Wolves held their own and took the lead shortly before the hour mark – albeit in controversial circumstances as Willy Boly’s final touch came off his hand before bobbling into the bottom corner.
City hit back through a thumping Aymeric Laporte header 12 minutes later and almost made it three wins from three with the final meaningful action of the match when Aguero crashed a free kick against the crossbar.
Wolves survived to claim a second successive home draw upon their return to the Premier League, although they are still searching for their first top-flight victory since February 2012.
