Ayermic Laporte scored his first goal for Manchester City, and it was an important one as the Citizens could only salvage a 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton.
There were about five key moments in this match, a combination of shots off the woodwork and calls missed in Wolves favor that cost Manchester City today. While they may not have been at their attacking best, they were eventually done in by bad luck. Twenty minutes in, Sergio Aguero took a low curling shot that looked destined for the corner but it hit the post. Not two minutes later, an ambitious shot from distance by Raheem Sterling was met with a touch save that grazed the bar. Then, City would find themselves behind on a goal that should not have been allowed due to a missed handball. Still, they managed to level near the 70th minute, when Laporte headed home a free kick from Ilkay Gundogan. The poor luck was capped off with yet another shot off the post by Aguero with moments left in the match. Aug 25 - 9:37 AM
