Manchester City have lost their first game of the season after suffering a 2-0 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Etihad Stadium in the English Premier League.

Man City needed to win to close the gap between themselves and leaders Liverpool.

They started the better of the two sides but a resolute Wolves defence managed to shut them down for 45 minutes as the first half ended 0-0.

The second half was also a carbon-copy of the first but Wolves made the most out of it as a counter-attack saw Adama Traore open the scoring in the 80th minute.

City came all out in search of the equalizer but Traore added a second in added time to make it 2-0 to Wolves.

Elsewhere at the St Mary's, Chelsea recorded a 4-1 win over Southampton with goals from Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, Ngolo Kante and Michy Batshuayi.

At the Emirates, a David Luiz header ensured Arsenal snatch all three points against Bournemouth.
