Manchester City cemented their spot atop the Premier League table after they managed to snatch a 1-0 win against stubborn 10-man Wolves.
The home side pressed the visitors at the Ethiad before Raul Jimenez was sent off on the stroke of half-time.
The first half saw Wanderers register only three shots on goal.
Bernardo Silva came closest to breaking the deadlock early on when he curled a left-footed effort just over, while Aymeric Laporte and Joao Cancelo came close to scoring in the first half.
After Jimenez was sent off on the stroke of first half, City came out stronger in the second half pushing further to break the deadlock.
However, Wolves resisted until the 66th minute.
Joao Moutinho was penalised for a handball in the box, and Raheem Sterling converted the spot-kick. It was his 100th goal in the Premier League.
Afterward, City continued to look for a second goal all to no avail.
