The Citizens achieved the victory with goals from the Portuguese Ruben Dias and Joao Cancelo in minutes five and 27, respectively, the French Riyad Mahrez (63) and Raheem Sterling (86).

The Premier League leader has 44 points, three more than the Reds, who drew 2-2 against Tottenham, and six points over the Blues, unable to go from a zero against Wolverhampton.

The Manchester squad also thrashed Leeds United 7-0 in their previous presentation and accumulated eight consecutive victories in the championship to take the reins of the classification.

On the road, Liverpool gave up two lines in the title dispute by drawing 2-2 against Tottenham.

Harry Kane put Spurs ahead in the 13th minute and then the Reds came back with the goals of Portuguese Diogo Jota (35) and Andrew Robertson (69), the latter sent off later (77).

Shortly before, in ’74, South Korean Son Heung-min got the final 2-2 for the locals.

Chelsea, who drew 1-1 against Everton on Thursday, drew this time without peroration against Wolverhampton (eighth in the championship), in a match that was played after a postponement request rejected by the Premier League.
