The 27-year-old scored on his 100th Premier League outing, converting Kevin De Bruyne’s cross, and earned Player of the Match honors with an 8.8 rating.
Jack Grealish scored Man City’s opening goal in less than a minute after De Bruyne delivered the ball into the center for Grealish to tap home, proving the critics wrong in just 55 seconds.
Erling Haaland became the first player in Premier League history to score in each of his first four away matches by scoring City’s second goal after being found in plenty of space.
Collins’ reckless challenge on Grealish resulted in a straight red card, which definitely made Wolves’ early-game comeback hopes more difficult.
The home team improved in the second half, but City was simply too powerful and added a third goal through Foden.
A goalscoring front-three for #ManCity! ?

Jack Grealish expressed his gratitude to his coach for having faith in him to start him against wolves in a post-game interview that was frank and open.
“I should be scoring more and getting assists. I’m always going to have people talk about me because of the amount I got bought for. Hopefully I repaid Pep for starting me after Wednesday” – Jack Grealish said.
Due to the victory, City overtakes Arsenal as the league’s top team. After scoring three more goals, they currently have a goal differential of +17, which is by far the greatest in the league.
Wolves currently sit in 16th place, and their fans will be hoping that Costa can provide their squad some much-needed offensive oomph in their upcoming match.
