Ghana's No. 1

Man City extend winning run to 21 games

Published on: 02 March 2021

Gabriel Jesus has been directly involved in 46 goals in 53 starts in all competitions for Manchester City at the Etihad

Premier League leaders Manchester City scored three times in the final 10 minutes to end Wolverhampton Wanderers' resistance and make it 21 consecutive wins in all competitions.

An unlikely second-half equaliser from Conor Coady in what was a largely one-side encounter gave the visitors hopes up of securing a surprise point before Gabriel Jesus put City back in front with a shot on the turn after Kyle Walker's cross had been deflected into his path.

With Wolves' spirit broken, in-form Riyad Mahrez fired in his seventh league goal of the season before Jesus got his second with virtually the final kick following a VAR intervention after an offside decision had initially gone against the Brazil striker.

Coady's equaliser just past the hour mark - cancelling out Leander Dendoncker's first-half own goal - was the first time the visitors had touched the ball inside the City box.

It the Wolves skipper's first Premier League goal, as he forced his way onto Joao Moutinho's free-kick to head in.

City have now extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to 15 points, although second-placed Manchester United, who are next in line to face Pep Guardiola's side on Sunday, do have a game in hand.
