MAN CITY HELD AT NEWLY-PROMOTED WOLVES

Aymeric Laporte rescued a point for Manchester City as they suffered an early stumble in their title defence with a 1-1 draw at Wolves.

City, who reached a record 100 points in winning the Premier League last term, had been in typically irrepressible form in their opening two games, brushing aside Arsenal and Huddersfield Town and scoring eight goals in the process.

However, it was a largely frustrating afternoon for Pep Guardiola's men at Molineux as Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling both hit the woodwork - the former doing so for a second time in the 95th minute - after Wolves' Raul Jimenez saw a goal disallowed for offside.

City's mood would have significantly worsened when Wolves took the lead in hugely controversial fashion., Willy Boly turning home from close range with his arm.

But Laporte capitalised on poor defending to head in Ilkay Gundogan's free-kick, ensuring City remain unbeaten and denying newly promoted Wolves a first win of the campaign.
