English Premier League : Man City Hold Off Wolves To Make Winning Start

Manchester city held off a second-half Wolves FIGHTBACK to begin their quest to regain the Premier League title with a win at Molineux. City did the damage in a superb first half as professional Footballers' Association Player of the year Kevin de Bruyne and Phil Foden both found the net.

However, city ran out of steam after the break. Daniel Podence twice went close for the hosts and Kyle Walker hacked a scuffed Ruben Neves shot off the line, before Raul Jimenez netted for the second time in this one, 12 minutes from time.

Wolves were unable to repeat last term's exploits and Gabriel Jesus' injury-time effort sealed victory for Pep Guardiola's side.
