PEP 💬 We can not give up otherwise we won’t be in Europe. There's less than 40 hours until we play. We have to prepare.— Manchester City (@ManCity) December 27, 2019
Our response is always good and we are used to being top and now we are fighting.

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson Moraes was sent off in the 12th minute of the match for a foul on Diego Jota. Jota received a long ball from his fellow teammate Conor Coady and was in a one-on-one position with the City goalkeeper. Ederson caught Jota without getting his hands on the ball. However, City were back in the game after Raheem Sterling scored from a penalty rebound. Sterling scored his second of the night with a beautiful chip over Rui Patricio in the 50th minute. However, Wolves were back in the game after Adama Traore scored for his side. It was followed by a tap-in from Raul Jiminez in the 82nd minute. Wolves went on to take a lead in the closing minutes of the match with a strike from Matt Doherty.
I still dont get the logic behind Mahrez and debryune s substitutions? Pep is losing it game by game.. focus on your team and forget about Liverpool.....Mendy.I got no words for you— Algerienne213 🇩🇿🌟🌟 (@AwaTefDz23) December 27, 2019
Pep really went to the easiest job he could. Spend about 63 Billion with 41 billion on Fullbacks and he's lost 2 league titles and hasn't even made the semi finals of a champions league— Chris™ (@MUnitedChris) December 27, 2019
