Wolves Replayed to focus on incredible Man City comeback

Wolves invited Manchester City to Molineux for the final game of the previous decade at Molineux as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side looked to end a magnificent 2019 on a high, and his players delivered a performance that would live long in the memory.

After a 2-0 win over City at the Etihad earlier in the season, Wolves were looking to complete the double over the incumbent Premier League champions, and hope was lifted when visiting goalkeeper Ederson was dismissed early on for bringing down Diogo Jota when the Portuguese was through on goal.

But dramatic scenes would follow, as Wolves found themselves two goals behind – including a double penalty take by Raheem Sterling after Rui Patricio saved his initial spotkick before VAR ordered it to be retaken – but the boys in gold and black launched an stunning second-half comeback.

Looking back at the stunning 3-2 win over City, Wolves TV are replaying the full 90 minutes of the match on the club’s official YouTube channel and Facebook page from 8pm on Monday in the second edition of Wolves Replayed.

The Wolves social media accounts will also be providing updates throughout the game to transport you back to that magnificent evening on 27th December.
