Phenomenal draw: Aguero’s free kick denied by Wolves

A phenomenal roar greeted the full-time whistle at Molineux as Wolves fans jubilated after the team held English Premiership champions 1-1.

Newly promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers had taken the lead through Willy Boly, before Aymeric Laporte levelled.

It was the first game of the league in Matchday3 and the outcome was least expected as City held possession 74-26. However, the champions could only convert one out of six shots on target.

The hosts were well worth a point having attacked City in a fashion precious few sides did last season, but also had luck in their side when Willy Boly’s opener was allowed to stand despite the final touch clearly coming off the defender’s hand.

City struck back through an unlikely source as Aymeric Laporte grabbed his first goal for the club with a thumping header, and only the woodwork denied the visitors all three points when Sergio Aguero’s free-kick came back off the bar in the fifth minute of stoppage time.

Wolves captain Conor Coady said afterwards:
“That’s what we’ve got to do in this division. They’re a fantastic side but we stuck to what we wanted to do. We had enough chances to score and we deserved a goal no matter how it went in – it was a fair result in the end
