Today  Manchester City beat 10-man Wolves 1-0 thanks to Raheem Sterling’s second-half penalty, giving them their sixth Premier League win in a row and keeping them atop the table.

Last weekend, City climbed to the top of the table for the first time this season, and they made the most of their opportunity to play before Liverpool and Chelsea on Saturday, winning a hard-fought – if somewhat controversial – match at the Etihad Stadium.

When Jimenez was booked for a foul on Rodri and then penalized almost immediately for failing to retreat when the free-kick was taken, the visitors were reduced to ten men.

Wolves struggled to pose a sustained threat at the other end, going a fourth game without scoring. Jack Grealish blasted over a great opportunity shortly after, while Silva and Sterling both had attempts saved by Jose Sa, but Wolves struggled to pose a sustained threat at the other end.
